Final Comprehensive Report of the Freestanding Housing Voucher Demonstration Volume II: Appendices
The sample of observations for the Demonstration consists of a sample of 20 PHAs and, within these PHAs, samples of Section 8 (Existing) Housing Program applicants randomly assigned to either the Housing Voucher or Housing' Certificate program. This appendix describes the sampling procedures and the samples actually drawn. A.l The Sample of PHAs The Demonstration sample of 20 PHAs consists of a probability sample of 18 larger urban PHAs, plus two statewide PHAs. The 18 larger urban PHAs comprise a stratified random sample of all larger urban PHAs. The two statewide PHAs were selected by HUD to provide some indication of program experience in smaller and/or less urban PHAs. (In addition, HUD is separately collecting information from a sample of 41 smaller urban and rural PHAs.)
