Cost Burdened Renters In Oregon Legislative Districts: Regardless of Party, About 1/2 of Renters Pay 30% or More for Rent and 1/4 Pay 50% of More for Rent.

I previously did a post HERE showing renter cost burdens for all members of the Oregon legislature, using ACS 2018 data. 

With a special session scheduled within a couple of weeks, I did an update using the latest (5 year) 2019 ACS data. 

The 3 page PDF file HERE and embedded below shows the rent burden counts and percentages for all 90 members with data for the 60 House members on pages 1-2 and data for the 30 Senate members in on page 3. 

Included also is the members name, district number, and party.  (Several seats are vacant but party affiliation is shown for prior occupant). 

I did a summary table pasted below that shows --PRE COVID--that regardless of party:

  • About 1/2 of all renter paid 30% or more for rent; that's 287,983 renter households.
  • About 1/4 of all renter paid 50% or more for rent; that's 145,586 renter households.
