Overview of Chicago's Housing Market

Institute for Housing Studies   (Chicago)

August 2018

The City of Chicago commissioned the Institute for Housing Studies to develop data to guide conversations around developing Chicago’s 2019-2023 Five-Year Housing Plan. These data informed a series of three Advisory Group meetings held in June and July 2018 where stakeholders were convened to discuss key housing challenges facing the city and recommend potential solutions.

These data are now available as a public resource to inform ongoing discussions of Chicago's housing needs on the website Overview of Chicago's Housing Market. The site highlights data on 1) Socioeconomic Factors Affecting Demand for Housing in Chicago, 2) Affordable Rental Housing and Displacement Pressure, and 3) Home Ownership and Investment in Chicago Neighborhoods.
