Program Description
2020 Profile of Iowa

The Profile of Iowa, sponsored by the Iowa Finance Authority, is undertaken annually to continue improving, enhancing, expanding, and making more readily available information about homeownership and rental housing needs in the State. The objective is to continually provide current, high-quality, relevant information about factors that influence the development, production, use, rehabilitation, and need for housing and housing services in Iowa’s local communities.

Volume II represents a county-by-county analysis, identifying pertinent statistics for all of Iowa’s 99 counties. It is a large report, and as such is released as a three-volume report.

Volume III examines 28 cities in the state. It represents a summary analysis of demographic, economic, and housing statistics, as well as population, rental vacancy data and housing production and cost information.

In addition there are 51 separate regional reports, highlighting Local Housing Trust Funds, Council of Governments as well as seven geographically defined regions. Custom regions can be created by selecting "Custom Region" under the regional dropdown.

All historical reports can be found under the "Reports" tab.

Regional Definitions can be found here: ICOG and LHTF.
