NLIHC Housing Spotlight: Renters' Growing Pain
The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) released the first edition of Housing Spotlight, which is a data series on housing issues. The first brief, "Renters' Growing Pain," describes housing cost burden among renters. Using 2010 American Community Survey data, brief finds that lowest-income renters, those earning under $20,000 per year, are the most likely to face housing cost burden. The brief also describes how the number of renters is growing, however, in 2010 there were one million fewer units of low-income rental housing under $500 than there were in 2007.
