This thesis deals with the housing affordability measurements in the Czech Republic and Finland in order to identify how many households are burdened with high housing costs. The environment of housing policy is taken into account and there are different housing affordability approaches depending on the tenure status of the households. This thesis presents long-term results in order to see the development of housing affordability. According to the findings, Finnish rental housing is far more affordable than in the Czech Republic where a significant percentage of rental households are facing worsening housing affordability.
