Racial Inequities in US Housing

2023 Special Report


Significant disparities in wealth and economic outcomes by race in the United States continue to endure today. As a primary tool for wealth-building and upward mobility, housing often exists as both a cause and solution for deep-rooted inequities.

Over the next several weeks, the research team at Chandan Economics will engage with several critical intersecting issues that, in aggregate, represent the core challenges surrounding racial inequities in US housing.

Following up on our 2022 report, where we explored case studies for potential solutions, our analysis will focus on racial disparities in five key areas:

  1. Household Wealth — February 2nd, 2023

  2. Housing Affordability — February 7th, 2023

  3. Credit Access — February 14th, 2023

  4. Housing Quality — February 16th, 2023

  5. Policy Considerations — February 21st, 2023


While throughout this analysis, we will dissect current and historical trends and provide broad policy recommendations—our primary goal in this report is to present a comprehensive review of the data germane to housing inequities to help further the conversation around corrective action.
