This report presents final statistics on financial characteristics of the housing inventory from the 1974 Annual Housing Survey for the United States by inside and outside standard metropolitan statistical areas (SMSA's) and each of the four geographic regions. Data are shown on income, value, and gross rent cross-tabulated by housing and household characteristics. In contrast to advance report part C, this report contains the additional information on financial characteristics which was collected for the first time in the 1974 survey. The Annual Housing Survey was designed to provide a current series of information on the size and composition of the housing inventory, the characteristics of its occupants, the changes in the inventory resulting from new construction and from losses, the indicators of housing and neighborhood quality, the characteristics of recent movers, and the characteristics of urban and rural housing units. The survey, performed for the Department of Housing and Urban Development is authorized under sections 501 and 502(d), 502(e), and 502(f) of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1970, Title 12, United States Code 1701z-1 and 17012-2.
