428,000 Visitors and 6,400 Hosts: Airbnb's 2017 By the Numbers
While the District is still debating how to deal with the juggernaut that is private home-sharing, a recent report from Airbnb shows how it continues to grow in popularity in the city.
Two year ago when UrbanTurf reported on the status of Airbnb in the city, data showed that the platform connected 142,000 guests to privately-owned lodgings in DC. In 2017, there were nearly that many guests in Ward 6 alone, the most popular ward with 134,500 guests last year.

- The typical host in DC housed a visitor for 49 nights last year; in 2015, 78 percent of hosts opened their homes for fewer than 90 nights per year.
- The typical host earned $5,800 in income through the platform.
- Of the hosts, 52 percent were women.
