Issue Papers on Demographic Trends Important to Housing
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has commissioned three papers on demographic trends important to housing in order to better understand how these trends will shape both housing demand and supply over the coming decade: Issue Paper on the Impact of Immigration for Housing, by Barry Chiswick and Paul Miller; Projections of U.S. Households by Race/Hispanic Origin, Age, Family Type, and Tenure to 2020: A Sensitivity Analysis, by George Masnick and Zhu Xiao Di; How Changes in the Nation's Age and Household Structure will Reshape Housing Demand in the 21st Century, by Martha Farnsworth Riche. These papers review past immigration patterns, how assumptions about future immigration can influence population predictions and current and future trends in households' age and minority compositions, respectively. Collectively, these three papers illustrate that the current demographic profile of the typical American household can be expected to change dramatically over the coming decades.
