The 2×4 Report tracks 2 timely, important housing trends in 4 key areas: rental market, owners’ market, homelessness, and the housing industry. Providing updated housing trends can help policymakers and the public better understand the state’s housing needs in a changing economy.
In a healthy market, a diverse supply of housing is available to meet the needs of families and individuals at all income levels. The semi-annual MHP 2×4 Report paints a concise picture of how well Minnesotans are housed and the magnitude of the state's housing crisis.
Individual indicators are chosen for their value in telling Minnesota’s housing story, as well as their availability and timeliness. Charts pertain to the entire state when available; in other cases data represent smaller regions or communities.
