Research by Howard Chernick, Roosevelt House Faculty Associate and Professor of Economics at Hunter College, was used in a recent report from How Housing Matters, an online resource developed by the Urban Institute, which promotes the most rigorous research and practical information on how a quality, stable, affordable home in a vibrant community contributes to individual and community success.

Chernick’s original research report, “The Effect of the Housing Crisis on the Finances of Central Cities”, was published by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. His co-authors include Andrew Reschovsky (Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and University of Wisconsin-Madison) and Sandra Newman (Johns Hopkins University).
