Housing, equity and health in U.S. news 2020-2021: Findings and recommendations


Understanding how journalists currently frame housing, and how those choices shape long-term narratives, can help housing and health advocates be strategic about their communication strategies. To understand the specific nuances of how news coverage frames the complex intersections of housing and health equity, Berkeley Media Studies Group conducted an ethnographic content analysis of news about housing and health equity from media markets across the country, informed by feedback from grantees funded by the Kresge’s Advancing Health Equity Through Housing Initiative working in those communities. BMSG shares its findings — and recommendations for advocates and journalists — in a new report, “Housing, equity and health in U.S. news: Findings and recommendations.”
