Regional Convergence and Structural Change in US Housing Markets
datasetposted on 27.07.2019 by William Miles
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This is the data used for the paper "Regional Convergence and Structural Change in US Housing Markets", which examines how convergent home prices are between the nine US Census Regions. Overall, the housing markets of the US are not convergent. There is evidence that high-priced regions, such as New England and the West Coast became more convergent with each other and less convergent with other regions starting in the early to middle 1980s, which were a time of change in housing finance.
