Out of Reach 2011 is Out, My First Map Shows Housing Wage Change in Oregon 2000-2011 Was Lower than Median for All States.

The NLIHC Out of Reach 2011 Report is out HERE.  I am sure there will be several Oregon specific reports coming out over next few days from different sources. 

My first effort is a state map I created in Google Fusion HERE and embedded below. (You will need a Google account to view the GF table link, but not the map below). 

The map shows changes in the housing wage from 2000-2011. Clicking on a state will reveal the housing wage for 2011 and the change in housing wage from 2000-2011. (The Google Fusion table has more data including housing wages and ranks for 2010, 2009, and 2000).

In the underlying data you will see that Oregon ranks 11th best (lowest) with a housing wage increase of 35%, less than the unweighted national median state increase of 42%.

I have inserted a picture of the style used to code the map below:
