NEED has assembled data into reports for cities in California. These reports include data on the cities' demographics, population change, housing (costs, ownership, permitting, age, and tenure) employment (overall, by industry, by occupation), commute patterns, and migration into and out of the city.

Cities that we have worked with find these reports useful for better understanding their population's needs, as a source for housing element reports, or as a means of attracting companies to the city.
