Following a report from the Urban Institute that estimates the Washington, DC region needs 374,000 more housing units by 2030, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments approved regional housing targets. DC Mayor Muriel Bowser set a goal to deliver 36,000 housing units by the year 2025. The office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning & Economic Development recently launched the DC Housing Data Blog to build a stronger shared understanding of housing data in the District. The blog provides analysis on housing in the District, as well as on the many factors that influence housing, such as employment, the economy and business development.
