Latin American and Caribbean countries are the most urban in the developing world, enjoy very high homeownership rates, and boast high average family incomes by developing world standards. However, many of the region's city inhabitants are still poorly housed. This issue of IDEA draws from the 2012 edition of the IDB's flagship publication titled Room for Development: Housing Markets in Latin America and the Caribbean to examine the magnitude of the problem and review policy options for dealing with it.
