In this presentation Professor Gabriel will outline a Big Data approach to determining levels of housing distress. Using Google search data the presentation will document a broad-based and real-time index (the Housing Distress Index (HDI)) of housing distress. The presentation will detail the characteristics of the HDI, how it compares to other indicators of housing distress, and its predictive power in determining the extent of housing distress.
