Comprehensive Housing Affordability Strategy Data

The Comprehensive Housing Affordability Strategy is a U.S. Department of Housing Development (HUD) dataset that provides information on severe housing problems and needs among households needing housing assistance, especially low-income households. The data covers income distribution, housing problems, severe housing problems, housing cost burden, income by housing problems, and income by cost burden. The data are updated every four years (quadrennially) and available at the state, county, and census-tract levels through a web-based table generator (also known as a query tool) or complete downloadable sets of data files. The data are stratified by race/ethnicity, household income, owners, and renters.
