The U.S. Census Bureau used addresses provided by HUD to identify other units in its regular American Housing Survey (AHS) sample that are subsidized by HUD. Together, the 2009 AHS supplemental and regular sample contained 4,426 assisted units. This report uses information on those units to characterize the 4.4 million rental units assisted by HUD in 2009. In addition, this report uses information from previous address-matched efforts to analyze how the HUD-assisted rental stock has changed over the last three decades.

This report is part of the collection of HUD Assisted Renters.
