The relationship between housing affordability and immigration has become relevant in the U.S., especially in a highly populated metropolis such as New York City (NYC). Determining whether immigration status affects home ownership, rent, or shelter cost could help understand the quality of life of NYC residents. Graphical exploration of housing affordability, immigration, and other social variables provides some insights about their relationships. Our exploration takes place at the borough and the sub-borough level.
