Welcome to “Housing the City“! This site was inspired by a desire to share research on housing policy (and related issues) in a free, accessible format. As my career has developed, the main focus of the site has shifted towards methods for analyzing social media data and large administrative data sets, but will occasionally still include musing about home ownership in cities. I still conduct research on housing, however, and so opted to keep the name =)
Check out my blog posts on big data methods, including machine learning, text as data, as well as commentary on housing policy, population change. There are also links to my publications and ways to connect with me in other venues.
Take a look around, comment, share, and let me know what you think!!
