Comprehensive Housing Market Analysis Reports


Ongoing research banner

Comprehensive Housing Market Analysis (CHMA) reports, available through the U.S. Housing Market Conditions portal site on, assist and guide HUD in its operations and have proven useful to builders, local planners, mortgagees, academics, and others concerned with local housing market conditions. For each analysis, field economists develop a factual framework based on information available from both local and national sources. Each analysis takes into consideration changes in the economic, demographic, and housing inventory characteristics of a specific housing market area during three periods: 1) the 10 years between the two latest decennial censuses, 2) the most recent decennial census to the as-of date of the analysis, and 3) from the as-of date to a 3-year forecast date.
