Housing Fact Book

The Housing Fact Book is an annual publication presented by HousingWorks RI at Roger Williams University that outlines housing affordability data for Rhode Island's 39 municipalities.

The goal of this annual publication is to provide the consumer with easy-to-understand information, as well as a tool to inform local and state decision-makers on the importance of an integrated approach to improving housing affordability in Rhode Island.

Given the dramatic impacts of COVID-19 on housing and employment, this year's Housing Fact Book has incorporated new relevant indicators. While the 2020 Housing Fact Book (.PDF) is based on pre-pandemic 2019 data, current mid-year data has been added to provide insight into employment and economic challenges present just before quarantine. 

For the first time, we have also included data related to racial and ethnic disparities which highlight stark inequities prior to the pandemic. By adding this new dimension to our analysis, the Housing Fact Book will better inform housing recovery, planning, and policies.
