Using Hedonic Indexes to Measure Housing Quantity – Housing Assistance Supply Experiment
This historic research report presents a hedonic index of the rental housing stock available in Brown County, Wisconsin, in 1974, as part of the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment. The Housing Assistance Supply Experiment was a 10-year research experiment conducted by the Rand Corporation on behalf of HUD in the housing markets of Green Bay, Wisconsin and South Bend, Indiana, during which low-income households were provided with monthly cash payments in order to offset their housing costs. The experiment ultimately made payments to 20,000 households and the comprehensive findings, titled “Experimenting with Housing Allowances,” was published as a book.
