Worst Case Housing Needs: 2023 Report to Congress

The Worst Case Housing Needs report, the nineteenth in a long-running series, focuses on critical housing challenges for very low-income renters. It defines worst case needs as households paying over half their income for rent or living in inadequate conditions. In 2021, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the report identified 8.53 million households with these worst case housing needs, surpassing the 2011 record high of 8.48 million and far exceeding the 5.01 million in 2001. The report maintains continuity with previous analyses while introducing a new element by exploring the intersection of worst case needs and housing overcrowding in its 2023 edition.
