New 5 Year ACS Data Has Expanded Cost Burden Data All the Way to the Block Group Level. At Multiple Income Levels,

The new 5 year 2010-2014 ACS data release today includes an expanded breakout of housing cost burdens, by income level. This 5 year data is available all the way to the block group level.

The prior tables stopped at cost burdens higher than 35%; The new tables include a break out of cost burden in 5% or 10% increments AND cost burdens of MORE than 50% (the HUD severe cost burden level). That data is available by income level starting at incomes below $10 and topping out with breakouts for those with incomes above $100k.

[Block group data is not included as it is only available by selecting individual counties].

For renters, the ACS table is B25074,
For home owners, the ACS table is B25095
