The 2011 American Housing Survey (AHS) included a supplemental survey of rental units receiving subsidies from programs administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In addition, the U.S. Census Bureau used addresses provided by HUD to identify other units in its regular AHS sample that are subsidized by HUD. Together, the 2011 AHS supplemental and regular sample contained 4,490 assisted units. This report uses information on those units to characterize the 4.5 million rental units assisted by HUD in 2011. In addition, this report uses information from previous address-matched efforts to analyze how the HUD-assisted rental stock has changed over the last three decades.

This report is part of the collection of HUD Assisted Renters.
