The changing character of the relationships between property interests and politics in Edinburgh largely reflects dramatic shifts in the housing tenure patterns. What occured in the city was very much in line with the national trends. In the early decades of the century, nine out of every ten households in Britain rented their housing from a private landlord, and even by 1947, six out of ten still did so. By 1981, however, only 13 per cent of households were beholden to the private landlord for their accommodation. These shifts are documented in the censuses, as shown in Table 5.1.
