OECD Releases Affordable Housing Database

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) released the Affordable Housing Database (AHD), which provides data on key housing and homelessness indicators for OECD countries. The AHD’s indicators include housing affordability, housing conditions, homelessness, and affordable housing spending. The AHD, which includes extensive documentation of methodology, data sources, and data comparability, is a useful resource for those interested in comparative housing policy.  

The OECD is an intergovernmental economic organization, founded in 1960 to stimulate economic progress and world trade, with 35 member countries. Most OECD members have high income economies with high Human Development Indices.
