The Urban Institute has created a public source for data on land-use practices from the first longitudinal land-use survey, the National Longitudinal Land Use Survey (NLLUS). The data, collected in 1994, 2003, and 2019 from local governments, are designed to represent the most populous core-based statistical areas in the country. The data can be used to describe land-use practices, assess whether those practices have changed over time, and analyze land-use practices’ relationship to housing supply and affordability, racial and economic segregation, urban sprawl, and neighborhood disinvestment. Join this webinar to learn about the study’s content and coverage, how to access the data, and how to use the findings properly.
The NLLUS includes data on the following areas:
• residential zoning density
• impact fees
• adequate public facilities ordinances
• accessory dwelling units
• growth management techniques
• affordable housing policies and programs
