Event Details

  • Idea Exchange
  • Growth in housing costs continues to outpace increases in household incomes.  While this is a problem throughout the nation, it is more pronounced in the Denver region.  As a result, households have started living together, a strategy that spreads the cost of food, utilities, rents and maintenance among more people.  This session will explore new data from Shift Research Lab that assesses the extent and depth of “doubling up” in the Denver region.

    Attendees will learn about Denver region-specific research available to the public, hear about economic forces that impact housing decisions and discover implications of planning and economic policies that affect housing markets.
