Thirty million US homes have at least one health or safety hazard and substandard housing is concentrated in low-income or ethnic minority neighborhoods.

Working with the National Center for Health Housing and Socrata, TCE is creating City Housing Checkup, a national dashboard of city performance on healthy housing, in order to improve the uniformity, effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of housing health and safety regulations nationally. By highlighting patterns of unsafe housing and identifying the factors responsible for these patterns, City Housing Checkup will provide the insights and evidence needed for regulators, advocates, and policy makers to improve housing conditions.

City Housing Checkup will leverage the House Facts Open Data Standard is a uniform format for reporting government data on the operation, safety, and performance of residential buildings.
