Report is HERE: PDF pages 14-15 are a discussion of method of estimating housing costs; tables are found in PDF pages 32 to 38.
I created the table below to show the differing housing expenses based on location and family composition.
I added a column that shows the % of average income per child for housing expense, it varies from a high of 11% for US single parent household to a low of 5% for a Husband/Wife family in the rural US.
- There is BIG difference in average income between single parent and husband wife households
- Housing expense per child in the URBAN West for a husband wife family are the highest at $297 per month-that's 95% HIGHER than the husband wife, RURAL all US per child monthly housing expense of $153.
