MetroTrends week in review

Last week, MetroTrends explored three very different dimensions of housing policy in metropolitan America:

  • Susan Popkin and Amanda Mireles argue for “two-generation” strategies to help the kids and their parents living in troubled public housing projects.
  • Margery Turner explores our latest interactive map, which shows early signs of a housing market recovery in metros nationwide.
  • Rolf Pendall compares three different tools for gauging rental affordability across metros.




As an organization, the Urban Institute does not take positions on issues. Experts are independent and empowered to share their evidence-based views and recommendations shaped by research.
