Double Trouble: Jobs and Housing

The Urban Institute has a report by Bob Lerman and Tom Kingslev citing metropolitan areas suffering from "double trouble" 2007-2009. They define "double trouble" as occurring in a metro area experiencing job losses and falling housing prices during that time. A map shows that "double trouble" is most common in California, Florida and the rust belt. Conversely, the metro areas in the mostly rural middle of the country have fared better.
