The 2×4 Report tracked 2 timely, important housing trends in 4 key areas — rental market, owners’ market, homelessness, and the housing industry — from 2009 to 2015.
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 painted a concise picture of how well Minnesotans are housed and the magnitude of the state's housing crisis. Individual indicators were chosen for their value in telling Minnesota’s housing story, as well as their availability and timeliness. Charts pertained to the entire state when available; in other cases data represent smaller regions or communities.
