This paper presents the adaptation of the "Florida Affordable Housing Needs Assessment Methodology" (Noll et al., 1997) to Brazil. This was a task developed jointly by the Florida team with researchers from IPEA and the World Bank. The Affordable Housing Needs Assessment Methodology, developed by the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing for the State of Florida, is based on household estimates calculated from household formation rates and population-by-age projections. The Brazilian Model was developed for four regions: the country of Brazil as a whole, the Integrated Development Region of the Federal District (RIDE of DF), and the Metropolitan Regions of Recife and Curitiba. This paper describes the adaptation process, presents the newly developed Brazilian Affordable Housing Needs Assessment and analyzes output from the model.
