Reports and Analysis

Check out our latest interactive feature “A Vision for an Equitable DC” that provides city and ward level breakouts of data to let users explore racial inequities in DC and how an equitable DC would be different. Additional data can be downloaded here. The presentation at the Consumer Health Foundation and Meyer Foundation’s event “DC in Color: Advancing Health, Economic and Racial Equity” is available here.

NeighborhoodInfo DC is a co-convener of the DC Preservation Network with the Coalition for Non-Profit Housing and Economic Development. Each month, we compile and post a new Preservation Catalog.

In the blog post, If we had a more equitable DC..., NeighborhoodInfo DC's Leah Hendey describes what a more equitable distribution of education, homeownership, and job outcomes would mean for residents of Wards 7 and 8. We also have a summary table with these equity measures for all wards and neighborhoods in the city, as well as a downloadable spreadsheet for visualizations and analysis.

Affordable Housing Needs Assessment: Phase 1
This report is the first part of an affordable housing needs assessment for the DC Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development. We examined the District of Columbia's Inclusionary Zoning (IZ) program through interviews, document review, and data analysis.

Our Changing City Chapter 3: Housing
High housing costs have helped make DC one of the most expensive places in the country to live. Can the city meet the needs of its new generation of residents while also creating and preserving affordable housing at all income levels?

Housing Security in the Washington Region
This study examines critical gaps in affordable housing across a range of income levels in the Washington, DC region. More permanent supportive housing is needed to reduce chronic homelessness. The lack of affordable apartments, particularly for extremely low income renters, contributed to the number of homeless people and resulted in over half of all renters paying over 30 percent of their income on housing costs.

Our Changing City Chapter 2: Schools
This piece explores changes in the DC education system over the past decade. In this second installment of Our Changing City, we examine DC's changing public school enrollment trends since 2000, breaking the data down by grade, race, school, and ward.
