We’ve compiled a database of research studies and literature reviews that investigate the impact of housing on individuals and communities. For each study, information is collected on the title, abstract, journal/publishing organization, publication date, and author. The Database is separated into three sheets:

  • Affordable Housing Studies: Research on the impact of public and affordable housing on residents and communities.
  • Literature Reviews: Literature reviews on the impact of housing on residents and communities.
  • General Housing Studies: Research on the impact of housing in general on residents and communities.
