The Cape Cod Commission periodically surveys the second homeowner population on Cape Cod to understand how second homes are used, how they might be used in the future, and how second homeowners participate in the local economy.

Surveys were conducted by the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute (UMDI) in 2008 and 2017. The 2017 included additional questions about how second homeowners participate in the local economy and on the potential impacts of environmental factors on second homeownership. The findings of this research informs economic development and land-use planning across Cape Cod.
