Link to my thesis: Short-term consequences: Investigating the nature, extent and rental housing implications of Airbnb listings in Vancouver

I defended my thesis on September 8, 2016 and have now uploaded the document to the SFU Library, where it is available online.

Short-term Consequences: Investigating the Nature, Extent and Rental Housing Implications of Airbnb listings in Vancouver

This is the research question my thesis addresses:

What are the extent and nature of Airbnb listings in the City of Vancouver and what are the implications of that information for the city’s rental housing policy goals?

To answer the “extent and nature” part of my question, I collected and analyzed Airbnb listings data for the period between the end of November 2014 and the beginning of December 2015.
