Field Economist Training and Support

Econometrica provides training and support to HUD’s Field Economists. Each year, we review and critique approximately 60 Comprehensive Housing Market Assessments that HUD economists prepare for the public to use in understanding the condition of local housing markets around the country. We train HUD Field Economists in basic and sophisticated housing market analysis techniques and tools through eight online training sessions and one in-class training session per year. Econometrica also makes recommendations regarding housing market data-source providers and analytical products.
