Housing Cost Burden - Renters

Reports & Graphics

Definition

Percentage of renter-occupied units spending 30% or more of household income on rent and utilities, 2011.

Description

This measure is an indicator of the portion of a household’s income that is consumed by costs of renting. Expenses such as rent, utility costs and other fees take away money that could be saved or invested in other assets. When these expenses exceed 30% of household income, the household is classified as “cost-burdened” and is at risk of eviction or homelessness if it suffers a decline in income.
