When it Comes to Housing Solutions, City Size Isn’t the Only Factor

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019
When we think about the issues cities are facing, we tend to categorize challenges and solutions by city size. After all, it makes sense that a community with a population of 2,000 would require different solutions than cities the size of New York or Los Angeles.

In the new report by NLC - Housing Market Conditions Across America’s Cities, they found when we put population count aside and focus on other characteristics, the housing crisis in cities like Columbia, Missouri (population: 123,180) and New York City (population: 8.623 million) begin to look similar despite differences in size and geography.
