MetroTrends week in review

MetroTrends bloggers wrote this week about issues on the streets – literally – of D.C. and other metros. As usual, the empirical evidence paints a picture with critical detail, directly informing sound policy.

  • Three Metro Center researchers took to D.C.’s streets this winter for the annual census of homeless residents – read about their count and perhaps surprising findings
  • Sandi Rosenbloom makes a strong argument in favor of delaying licensing teen drivers, who are by far the most likely group to have an accident on the road

Next week we’ll write about employment, crime and more – check back on Monday!



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.
