New HUD Website Provides Detailed Economic and Housing Data

The Department of Housing and Urban Development released a new website that provides a detailed look at economic and housing data at a regional, state, metro and county level.

Using data from the Census Bureau, Labor Department, State and Local governments, housing industry sources, as well as HUD’s own field economists, the new website employs interactive maps that allow visitors to access a variety of reports – from a region-wide look at employment and housing activity to individual county-level figures on population trends, rental activity and vacancy rates.

“This is a powerful new tool that’s easy to use and offers the public a remarkable look at their local economic and housing markets,” said Dr. Raphael Bostic, HUD’s Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research. “Current and reliable data shouldn’t be hard to come by. This is precisely why this site will be so helpful to state and local leaders, developers, the real estate industry, and the general public who need the latest available data on their markets.”

The website provides an interactive map of the US that allows visitors to see data in an umber of areas – from an entire region down to a particular county.  These reports include, “Market at a Glance”, “Regional Housing Market Profiles”, “Regional Narratives”, and “Comprehensive Housing Market Analysis”.
