This report analyzes the effect of the experimental Housing Gap housing allowances on the housing consumption of recipients. Several measures of housing consumption are examined: housing expenditures, housing services (measured by hedonic indices of real housing), the standardness of the dwelling unit, and other measures of physical adequacy. The effects of the allowances are measured as deviations from normal behavior estimated using Control households. Particular attention is paid to the possibility of bias due to self-selection.
