Housing construction in SF increases with population growth
The above graphs demolish the myth propagated by C.W. Nevius and others (see also this) that the cause of the present housing crisis in SF is opposition to any and all development by nimbys and unnamed groups and individuals. You can see that the construction of housing closely tracks the growth of the city's population.
Can we build our way to affordable housing in the city?
