Housing policy analyses
For the information of the specialist public and for the advising of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community (BMI), the Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development (BBSR) prepares current topics from housing policy and urban development. This takes place in the different research programmes of the ministry (general departmental research, ExWoSt, Development of Eastern Germany) and also through analyses and reports of their own. The results are incorporated in the (further) development of housing policy instruments and programmes. Thus the BBSR offers besides spatial observation and housing market observation "competence centres" for different issues relevant to the housing policy and housing market as an ongoing task.
