Since 2011, Econometrica has been working with the Urban Institute and other firms to plan for and study the housing needs and conditions of Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians throughout the United States. This congressionally mandated study included components such as a study of Native Americans living in urban areas; household interviews and observations on tribal lands; a phone and web survey of Tribally Designated Housing Entities and tribal housing departments; and more. Econometrica is proud to have visited tribes across the nation, as well as Native Hawaiian Home Land communities in support of field interviews and other data collection efforts, including as a lead author of the Housing Needs of Native Hawaiians report. We also contributed to an analysis of U.S. Census data and supported formal government-to-government consultations in the development of the study. The Executive Summary was recently published by HUD, and we look forward to the forthcoming publication of the entire report, which will be submitted to Congress. Dr. Kristen Corey, Charles Hanson, Dr. Richard Hilton, Doray Sitko, and Wayne Mundy all contributed to this project. View HUD’s press release here.
