Population and Housing Trends Indicate Mixed Progress

Population and Housing Trends Indicate Mixed Progress

The Regional Planning Commission just released the Housing and Population Regional Trend Report. The report describes how the greater Madison region is meeting housing needs in response to population changes, and tracks four indicators:

Range of housing types

Built percent of new homes built in already developed areas

Affordable housing supply gap

Housing cost burden

Progress towards achieving these goals, according to the available data, is a mixed picture. On the one hand, housing diversity appears to be improving.
