MetroTrends week in review

  Last week, MetroTrends bloggers looked behind the headlines, offering facts and analysis about both employment and housing woes:

  • Rich Johnson debunks the suggestion that older workers are getting more than their fair share of jobs.
  • Zach McDade introduces our latest interactive mapping tool showing foreclosures by zip code in hard-hit Prince George’s County
  • Margaret Simms explains why trends in unemployment claims don’t necessarily line up with trends in unemployment rates.




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.
