Since making sound housing policy decisions is about having timely, relevant data at-hand when it’s needed, VHDA regularly conducts analyses of housing market and demographic trends impacting housing needs in the Commonwealth. These analytical assessments assist us in our organizational strategic and program planning. They also provide data that can assist broader state housing policymaking activities, and the activities of other housing stakeholders.
In the past, assessment of housing needs occurred in conjunction with the release of new decennial Census data. Now that the federal government is releasing updated housing data on an ongoing basis, VHDA will also be monitoring and analyzing housing market and demographic trends on an ongoing basis and regularly posting analytical reports on this page.
