As a trial I am embedding below a H+T Index map for the Portland Metro area that shows cost burdens for renter households. Data shows that 41.2% of renter households in Metro area spent more than 45% of income for housing and transportation, vs 37.4% in City of Portland, and 43.5% in Multnomah County (Click within map in City of Portland and pop up will show with these numbers)
IMPORTANT NOTE :These %'s are of Median Household in Region [$47,077]; if focused on lower income renters the % of cost burdened households would be significantly HIGHER; my prior post HERE shows results at 80% of median household income [$37,662].
(Data sources for H+T index are explained in detail HERE, and HERE is a direct link in case the embed doesn't work).
Also HERE is the H+T index PDF profile for the Portland Metro area.
