We’re building the nation’s first dataset of evictions and making everything public and accessible.

In early 2018, The Eviction Lab at Princeton University will launch a website that maps eviction rates in communities across the country. You will be able to compare one location to another, see how many evictions per day occur in each area, view charts and graphs, and easily share these facts with your community.

The lack of affordable housing and high number of evictions in America are among the most urgent issues facing low-income families today. Yet they are also among the least understood.

The Eviction Lab at Princeton University is building the first database of evictions in America. The Lab will produce rigorous and novel research about the causes and consequences of, and solutions to, the affordable housing crisis.

Big data about residential insecurity in your community is coming soon.
