2021 - 2022 Research Reports

Our data-driven reports provide analyses on how factors such as housing affordability, supply and demand, and overcrowding, affect the current state of housing challenges. 

2021 - 2022 Research Briefs

We devote three issue briefs to our recent study on the allocation of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) in the Inland Empire. The PPP is a Small Business Administration (SBA)-backed loan program that helps businesses keep their workforce employed during the COVID-19 crisis. In Issue 1, we provide an introduction of the PPP and examine the characteristics of small businesses that have received the PPP loans. Then we look at the geographical distribution of PPP loans at the neighborhood level in Issue 2. In Issue 3, we looked at which neighborhoods received more PPP loans.

2020 - 2021 Reports

Our 2020 report focuses on housing in the Inland Empire region. Specifically, our report contains factors driving demand, construction trends, data- driven jurisdictional summaries, resident case studies, and focus groups. The final report will be released in eight sections, each contributing important information and research about our topic.

2020 - 2021 Research Briefs

In our Issue Brief Series, we profile and analyze the most important housing issues in the Inland Empire. Each Brief is 3-4 pages and covers topics ranging from affordable housing availability to state housing bills authored by area representatives.
