Administrative Data Research Facility


This project will expand the access, functionality, and availability of research data creating relational databases, linking datasets across geographical units and across time, that would then be housed and analyzed within cloud architecture. The project will explore options for providing access to administrative data for the broader research community through easy-to-use interfaces and potential integrations.

Housing markets have slowly recovered in the wake of the Great Recession, but pressing questions remain. Regulators and other policymakers are making critical decisions each day, and they need information, evidence-based analysis, and solutions. The Housing Finance Policy Center was created to fill this need. Our work connects capital markets and housing markets to policy issues of the day. We provide timely, impartial data and analysis; show how the housing finance system affects households, communities, and the broader economy; and contribute to sound public policy, efficient markets, and economic opportunity.
