With the release of new ACS 2012-2016 data today I have updated that data and added a lookup worksheet that makes it easy to drill down to you geography of interest. (all of the previous worksheets remain).
That updated workbook is posted HERE, with a couple of examples of results pasted below.
The primary take aways for me:
- For all most every geography, 98% or more of SEVERE cost burdens occur among renters with incomes BELOW $50k.
- New affordable development should therefore focus primarily on serving those households below $50k and particularly those with the lowest incomes where the incidence of severe cost burdens routinely is above 80%.
