• Description

Working a full-time job does not guarantee a family a decent, affordable place to live-a problem the Center for Housing Policy has been tracking for the past eight years. Using the most recent American Housing Survey (2005), this report updates national trends in the number of working families paying more than half of their income for housing and/or living in dilapidated conditions. A new feature in this edition is a close-up look at 31 metropolitan areas and changes in their critical housing needs from the mid 1990s to the early 2000s.
