An impressive amount of housing advocacy agencies are present in NYC. This likely speaks to the housing Crisis in NYC better than any other statistic. In recent years, researchers, like corporations, have realized that "Big Data" can be used not just to "sell" an idea, but also to report on one.
As such, organizations as varied as NYU's Furman Center to the NYC Council Housing Committee have organized data regarding affordable housing, and the city residents who need them. NYC itself has committed to a fairer environment by providing the key ingredient of "transparency" through open sharing of data. You can access loads of data, outside of housing, at OPEN DATA NYC.
Big data allows for a systematic, objective, approach to assessing program and policy performance. As an accountant/auditor in training, I have found that Big Data allows for showing meaningful, relevant, impact trends for policy stakeholders to review. It further provides them the tools to transparently address inequity in programs and policies in a timely manner..
If you have collated data, or know of any agency that has collated data regarding NYC affordable housing, please share it!
