This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "The Growth of Housing Prices, 1974-1979," by Paul S. T. Lee.
Housing plays a major part in the lives of everyone. Its quality and location affect the stability, happiness, and security of families and have profound implications for the economic and social well-being of both urban and rural areas. To many households, buying a home represents the largest single investment they will make, and the monthly mortgage payment accounts for the largest single item of household expenditures.
