Demographics & Projections

Growth in the number of households is the primary driver of housing demand. For over three decades, the Joint Center has documented how underlying demographic shifts—in particular, the growing diversity and changing age structure of the population—shape the type, quantity, quality, and location of housing. Our long-term household growth projections are widely used within the housing industry to analyze future trends in demand.
