The State of the Nation's Housing 2018

The State of the Nation's Housing 2018

Date: Tuesday, June 19, 2018
Location: National Press Club

Join us as we mark the 30th anniversary of The State of the Nation’s Housing at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

The State of the Nation's Housing, which has been released annually since 1988, describes key trends in both national and metro-level homeownership and rental markets, and reviews key economic and demographic trends that are shaping current and future demand in those markets. The 30th anniversary report also examines how some of today’s conditions echo the past and are a yardstick for the progress we as a nation have and have not made in fulfilling the promise of a decent, affordable home for all. 

REGISTER TO ATTEND (in person) the release event at the National Press Club on Tuesday, June 19 from 4:00 - 6:30 pm ET.

Note: This event will also be webcast live. (No registration required; video will stream on the main page of our website.)
