California's Housing Shortage continues to price hundreds of thousands out of the state annually and the government isn't getting serious enough.
Huh. The stat that Utah has such low housing per-capita is interesting. Is that just because of big families? Maybe not... I just pulled up their vacancy rate, and it's quite comparable to CA, much lower than rust-belt states like Ohio or Michigan.
I think ignoring the fact that California has gained population from immigration from overseas only shows half the picture here. I would particularly be curious about the education and income levels of new immigrants.
