New ideas
In the future HUD should:
1) keep the asthma question on EVERY panel of the AHS; asthma is rising and is linked to housing/neighborhood conditions therefore making the AHS a great source of data

2) study housing discrimination more regularly and at the METRO level; the HDS has outlived its usefulness. We need metro-level indicators of housing discrimination to link to segregation as well as health measures.
We appreciate the time you have taken to share these suggestions. Your ideas will be shared within HUD as we develop our research priorities and make decisions regarding ongoing survey efforts. Please continue sharing your insights in these areas.

Cities, Inequality and the Common Good

"As investors move to buy up foreclosed homes and so-called "vacant lots" on which community gardens sit, to displace many longstanding businesses and cultural institutions, local residents and activists propose instead to take some of these properties out of the real estate market altogether. To do so, they are creating limited-equity cooperative housing, real estate investment cooperatives, and other mechanisms to stabilize neighborhoods and to preserve long-term affordable residential, commercial and artistic spaces."
