HOW DOES IT WORK?

The tool operates through a multi-step process: firstly, it employs census data to define and quantify various levels of housing deficits—quantitative, qualitative, and total. Secondly, it discerns intricate patterns in the presence of indicators that signify qualitative deficits, utilizing cutting-edge association analysis. Lastly, the tool harnesses regression analysis to project the extent of qualitative and total deficits, incorporating data gleaned from satellite imagery to fill in gaps when current census information is unavailable.​
