The data-viewer offers statistical information on housing in the metropolitan area. It’s a tool created by Barcelona’s Metropolitan Housing Observatory (O-HB), an entity created by the City Council, Metropolitan Area, the Provincial Government and the Generalitat, with the support of the Social Housing Administrators Association of Catalonia. Their objective is to collect, analyze and share statistics on housing in the metropolitan area.
Another available resource is the latest ‘Housing Figures’ report, this six-monthly document shows the evolution of the indicators most significant to housing in the city.
