It assembles and analyzes the most current data on housing conditions and trends in the District of Columbia and the surrounding suburbs. This year's report focuses on Washington, D.C., examining how the region's sustained prosperity is transforming the District's housing market. More specifically, the report assesses how the city's neighborhoods are changing and explores the consequences for housing opportunity and housing policy across the city.
