Research conducted within the Center includes both theoretical and empirical investigations of regional housing markets; mobility and location choices of households and businesses; interaction of land use and transportation; relationships between spatial patterns of development and the dynamics of regional economies, and on the interaction of market forces and public policies in shaping development.
