Description

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is pleased to transmit to the U.S. Congress this 2017 report on Worst Case Housing Needs. This report—the 16th in a longstanding series—provides national data and analysis of the critical problems facing low-income renting families.  The American Housing Survey (AHS) is a key source of national data on housing markets, conditions, and dynamics. These data show that, although 43.2 percent of very lowincome renters had worst case needs nationally, local markets reflect a substantial degree of variation beyond the longstanding trends observed across regions and types of metropolitan locations.
