Focusing on migration patterns of renters in the San Francisco Bay Area, Stanford Graduate School of Business Professors Rebecca Diamond and Tim McQuade along with PhD student Franklin Qian embarked on a new study examining the effects of rent control expansion.
Stanford University utilized data from Infutor's extensive, up-to-date Identity Graph of 225M individuals and 125M households to identify address history across the United States over the last three decades.
Specifically, the data helped identify:
- How many San Francisco residents lived in rent-controlled units
- Length of residency in rent-controlled units in San Francisco
- How much money San Francisco residents saved in below-market rents
- How often landlords converted units to new types of housing not covered under rent control
- How median rents changed since the 1990s
Download this case study to gain insight into how Stanford researchers used Infutor data to draw conclusions on residential movements and used this knowledge to understand on how voters may react to rent control issues in upcoming elections.
