Housing Security


Integrated data

The Metro Center's work concentrates on the communities—housing developments, neighborhoods, cities, and suburbs—that make up America's urban regions. Our research investigates factors that shape the quality of life in these communities, the opportunities they offer residents, and the effectiveness of federal, state, and local public policies that govern urban housing and neighborhoods.
