This report looks at the outcomes of young adults, ages 10-16, in the 1980s who lived as teenagers in U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) public and assisted housing developments during the 1970s. The authors compare these outcomes to those of lower-income teenagers who did not receive public assistance, and separate the effects of assistance from the unobserved characteristics of families that might affect both the need for housing assistance and the subsequent careers of the children.
