Requesting Feedback: Updating our County Profiles

Stephanie Watkins-Cruz, Director of Housing Policy

Background on County Profiles
As the end of the year quickly approaches, the policy team here at the NC Housing Coalition is working on updating our annual County Profiles which provide a snapshot of housing needs for each of North Carolina’s 100 counties. They provide data on cost-burdened households paying at least 30% of their income on housing, a comparison on what different jobs pay, as well as changes in home prices, foreclosures, and rental options in our communities. The foundational goal of The County Profiles is to be used by advocates in their communities and with their local and state elected officials as an education tool around the housing issues that we all face in our cities and towns.

Submitting your Feedback
As we enter this next phase of preparing County Profiles, we want to ask YOU, advocates across the state and beyond, for your valuable feedback on how we can keep this resource not only updated, but helpful and relevant for those that use it and those that could use it.

Between today October 5th, 2022 and midnight on October 26,2022, please take a moment to check out the various versions of County Profiles that have existed over the years, and let us know what you think. Check out a gallery of past profiles by clicking here or viewing the gallery below.

Things we want to know:

  • What audiences or contexts do you use County Profiles in? 
  • Have you used the information provided in the County Profiles before?
  • Do you find the data in the County Profiles helpful?
  • What information would you like to see in future County profiles?
  • Is there any information you think should be removed from County Profiles?
  • Any other additional thoughts or ideas 

Ways to Submit Feedback

Once we have the feedback, we will compile it, put together a mockup and ask for feedback on that before moving ahead towards final drafts and publication which we hope to release in late January 2023.
