Airbnb Opportunity Calculator

Turning government data into digital tools that help people.




In 2016 President Obama launched the Opportunity Project

A small volunteer team including Airbnb's head economist joined together to create a tool that turns curated federal and local datasets into digital tools that provide Americans with economic opportunity. It was later selected to be demoed at the White House. This tool allows anyone to calculate the percentage of their rent that could be covered by hosting on Airbnb for a specific number of days using your zip code and HUD data.
