To better understand the level of accessibility in the U.S. housing stock, the 2019 American Housing Survey (AHS) included a series of questions pertaining to the respondent household's level of access and use of their own home. The results of this "Housing Accessibility" module indicated that 13 percent of U.S. households include someone who uses a mobility-assistive device, and 19 percent of households include an individual with accessibility needs. Further, 6 percent of households include someone who has difficulty entering the home, or accessing or using a kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom due to a condition.
