This article provides a summary of the motivation, process, and status of a collaborative federal effort to develop a housing insecurity survey module that is transferable across household surveys and studies. The module will serve as the basis of a validated and transferable composite index of housing insecurity. This index is intended to be suitable for use in a variety of survey and evaluation instruments that have previously excluded or insufficiently specified housing problems.
