  • Qualified rent index 2024 for the city of Wolfsburg

    The City of Wolfsburg's Data, Strategies and Urban Development Department has developed the qualified rent index 2024 for Wolfsburg on its own initiative in accordance with scientific principles.

The tenants' association Mieterverein Wolfsburg e.V. and Haus & Grund Wolfsburg und Umgebung e.V. approved the rent index as voting members of the working group on 27 September 2023. The Wolfsburg City Council also recognized the rent index at its meeting on 6 December.

  • Population forecast

    Population forecasts have been calculated for the city of Wolfsburg since 2002. The population forecasts of the city of Wolfsburg show the development of the population and the age structure for the respective forecast period. The underlying assumptions are based on population movements (births, deaths, immigration and emigration) and residential construction projects. The forecast is based on the "if-then principle", i.e. the population will only develop as calculated if all assumptions are met. In Wolfsburg's city administration, the forecast is used as a strategic management and controlling tool and as a basis for investment and infrastructure planning in various business areas.

    The start date of the current "Population Forecast 2022" for the city of Wolfsburg is 31.12.2021. Forecast data was calculated for each year up to 2027 for the city as a whole. Methodologically, the population forecast can be described as a year-by-year, location-specific projection. It was prepared by the City of Wolfsburg's Data, Strategies and Urban Development department using the SIKURS program. Based on the population development of the past five years (2017-2021), the forecast extrapolates this development into the future with modified migration assumptions. Population movements, housing construction projects and, in particular, the influx of refugees from Ukraine were taken into account. The population forecast for the city of Wolfsburg focuses on the assumptions with the highest probability of occurrence."

  • Migration motive survey 2018

    Every year, a large number of people move to the city of Wolfsburg and just as many leave. Through population statistics, the city does know how many people move from A to B each year and also, for example, which age groups move. However, it knows little about their motives or why they migrate. Therefore, from October to December 2018, around 9,000 citizens were contacted who had moved to Wolfsburg in the past two years or who had left Wolfsburg for the surrounding area, the Hanover region or Berlin.

    The city's main aim in conducting the survey was to gain new insights into Wolfsburg's housing market. To this end, respondents were asked, among other things, about the reasons for their move, their housing preferences and living conditions, and how the search for housing had progressed. The good response rate of 24% shows that there is still a great deal of interest among households that have moved away in developments in Wolfsburg.
