Report Summary:

The Terwilliger Center Home Attainability Index is a data-rich resource for understanding the extent to which a housing market is providing a range of choices attainable to the regional workforce. The data can help to:

  • Identify gaps in home attainability and provide better context to understand the residential market;
  • Provide context by connecting housing costs to the wages earned by specific occupations in a region through an Occupational Analysis;
  • Explicitly identify and highlight racial, socioeconomic, and intra-regional disparities and inequities; and
  • Enable national and regional comparisons to inform housing production, policy, and financing decisions.

The Summary Report provides a high-level overview of the Index and methodology and a summary of findings based on a high-level review of the data. A special research brief on Housing, Health, and the COVID-19 Crisis explores relevant Index metrics and complementary research on the impacts of the pandemic on home attainability. Finally, an Interactive Data Spreadsheet includes all 2021 Index data and allows users to create customized national and regional comparisons, charts, and graphs.
