NAHB creates national housing affordability maps

New feature of the NAHB Housing Portal helps illustrate the severity of declining affordability.

A new feature of the NAHB Housing Portal — a free, interactive, online resource filled with information about the impact of housing — helps illustrate the severity of declining affordability. Statistics from not only the national, but also the state and even congressional-district levels are readily accessible on key areas such as:

  • Portions of cost-burdened households
  • Median home values
  • Total number of cost-burdened renters
  • Shares of “affordable” homes available

In addition to its new Affordability section, the Housing Portal continues to provide a wide variety of information on the importance of housing, including the latest on employment growth, consumer polling results and policy issues.

Printable reports can also be downloaded from the Housing Portal. To find detailed information about housing markets in a specific state or locality, visit
