NLIHC was founded on the principle that data-driven advocacy works. Our ongoing research, as well as analysis of major new studies, makes clear the need for housing for America’s lowest income people.

Every year, we release Out of Reach, a report on the mismatch between what workers can afford and the market rents they must pay in every community in the United States. Our research team also produces the Congressional District Profiles, which empower policy advocates with specialized data from their own communities. We produce specialized analyses of current issues, like foreclosure, disaster housing, and the affordability gap. NLIHC’s Housing Spotlight series provides a snapshot analysis of key housing data from the federal government and other sources as it is made available to the public.
