The HPI is a comprehensive collection of publicly available house price indexes that measure changes in single-family home values based on data that start in the 1970s and includes all 50 states and over 400 American cities. It includes tens of millions of home sales and offers insights into house price changes at many regional levels.

This can occur for various reasons and can have both positive and negative implications for the economy. Housing occupancy and vacancy are compared below in Arizona and the United States.
