New American Housing Survey Results for 25 Metro Areas

HUD and the U.S. Census Bureau have released the results of the 2015 American Housing Survey for 25 metropolitan areas, focusing on housing costs, food insecurity and neighborhood characteristics. For the first time in its 42-year history, the American Housing Survey included questions on food security status, which allowed HUD to assign households a “food security status” score and identify those that are food insecure. The survey results show that 4.9 percent of homeowners and 15.5 percent of renters were food insecure in 2015.
