Although evictions are a major housing problem that disproportionally affects lower-income and minority tenants, no systematic data about evictions are collected on a local and national level. This article presents the scattered available data on the magnitude and impact of the problem, along with existing model efforts to reduce its incidence and impact. Creating a national database on eviction- how many, where, who, and why, and what happens to evictees- would be an important first step in focusing attention on this neglected issue. Definitional questions must be resolved as an initial step. In an effort to launch such a project, suggestions are offered on how to begin creating such a database. (Authors)
