Publication Icon

This report marks the first systematic analysis of low-income residents in assisted housing conducted in more than a decade. Data on the characteristics of HUD-assisted households and their units were obtained by matching addresses of known subsidized units and subsidy recipients to sample households in the 1989 American Housing Survey. This report provides detailed information and extensive tables on HUD-assisted renters and units, including characteristics of heads of households, composition and financial characteristics of households, structural qualities and location of units, condition of units, and tenant opinions of their neighborhoods and units.
