Ferguson Mo: HUD Data Indicates that 23% of All Renter Households Were Helped by Voucher Program; 97% of Voucher HH's Were African American.

I extracted voucher data for Ferguson from 2013 HUD's Picture of Subsidized Housing report HERE and created a PDF table HERE.

In the PDF I added a comparison to the ACS 2012 3 year total of rental units and population in rental units.  
It appears that:
  • 23% of all rental households had vouchers.
  • 24% of the rental population lived in voucher households.
  • 97% of voucher rental households had a African American head of household.
  • 94% of all voucher holder heads of household were  women; 64% of voucher households were headed by women with children.
  • 6% of voucher holder heads of household were elderly.
