A project working to identify substandard rental housing.
Original problem statement: "How can we identify substandard housing? Many rental properties are unlicensed and other with many code violations. How can L&I keep track of which properties should have licenses but do not? Are there indicators that L&I could use to isolate which types/locations most likely aren't up to code?"
L&I goal (to be approved by Shannon) - to provide a minimum standard of living for every resident of Philadelphia.
Team goal - Provide information highlighting properties below minimum standard of living.
1) With the data that we have, where should L&I focus their efforts?
2) What additional data will be helpful to identify higher risk variables?
3) How can we get new violation reports? (new ways to report, new people who generally wouldn't report, etc.)
