Some households face overcrowded living conditions, while others are forced to leave the state or experience homelessness. The release of the annual housing report by the University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization (UHERO) provides comprehensive data at the state, county, and zip code levels, facilitating informed discussions, highlighting ongoing research, and promoting a more accessible housing debate. The forthcoming online data portal empowers the public to explore and analyze the data themselves, contributing to a clearer understanding of the housing challenges. Addressing these challenges is crucial for creating sustainable communities and ensuring a brighter future for all residents of Hawai‘i.
