A historic report undertaken by the National Housing Committee, this brief 32-page document uses census and market data to estimate the then-current national demand for housing units and predict the number of new units needed by 1939 to fully satisfy this demand. The authors estimate a shortfall in production and an upcoming tightening of both the rental and sales markets on a national basis.

This report is part of the collection of scanned historical documents available to the public.
