Characteristics of HUD-Assisted Renters and Their Units in 2003


Report Acceptance Date: May 2008 (580 pages)

Posted Date: August 04, 2008

This report is the fourth in a series of reports providing information on the size, composition, and quality of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-assisted housing stock and the characteristics of its occupants. These reports are intended for the use of policymakers, analysts, and proponents of housing assistance for low-income households. HUD obtains this information by identifying assisted households that are also surveyed in the biennial national American Housing Survey (AHS).

The 2003 data reported here represent assisted households and units in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, but exclude households and units in Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands, which are not included in the AHS. The 2003 data are a statistically valid description of assisted households. These data are available only for the United States as a whole, with simple tabulations for the four census regions. Because of sample limitations, data are not available for states or smaller areas.
