OECD Housing Gateway

Data dashboard

Providing decent and affordable housing has become increasingly challenging in many OECD countries. Macroeconomic performance and environmental sustainability hinge on the housing markets’ ability to spatially align housing supply with demand. Housing market inefficiencies can erode affordability, result in social and economic exclusion, hinder residential and labour mobility and exacerbate pressures on ecosystems.

This dashboard provides a narrative and several visualisations to measure the key challenges faced by national housing markets in OECD countries. It should help policymakers identify key variables to assess the strengths and shortcomings of national housing markets with respect to OECD standards and provide sources and support for informed policy choices when designing national housing strategies.
