GPP’s Housing Data Hub:
Research based data for public policy and planning

GPP’s Housing Data Hub (HDH) provides the public, policy makers, and the media access to a curated set of timely housing-related information in a single portal that offers interpretive information, maps, and graphics. The HDH incorporates relevant reports and policy documents that provide further background for understanding key issues.
The HDH includes:

  • Regional Housing Indicators: A concise, coherent, and expert-vetted set of regional indicators that provide a continuously updated overview of the state of housing in the Portland, Oregon, metro region. The indicators give a high level overview of the housing market as it changes over time and helps researchers identify areas for deeper analysis.
  • Small Geography Maps: The maps allow users to explore the housing market as it plays out in neighborhoods and jurisdictions across the region.
  • Research & Data Stories: Original research published on the HDH explores the legal and public policy issues involving land use, real estate, housing, and urban affairs in the region. Do you have a question about housing in your community? Would you like to see research on our site applied to your town or neighborhood? We provide custom research and data analysis tailored to meet your needs and budget
