HAND also organized the production of a Housing Reference Manual with the geographic focus of Salt Lake City, City Council Districts, and Census Tracts. The contents of this manual have been designed and organized thematically into three major sections: housing, population, and change products. 
 
The housing section includes information on: homeownership rates by race and ethnicity, households by selected types,and housing affordability. The population section presents information on: selected age metrics, group quarters populations, socioeconomics, and the homeless. The change products evaluated the changes from 2000 to 2010 for population and household metrics.
