A new report published in Cities, “Eviction from Public Housing in the United States,” highlights trends in eviction filing rates among public housing agencies (PHAs). Using data from 1,243 PHAs spanning 26 states, the report finds that, on average, 7.6% of tenants in public housing receive an eviction filing annually, representing 5.8% of all eviction cases nationally. Eviction filing rates vary greatly across PHAs, however, with PHA-filing rates largely reflecting eviction trends in the corresponding private rental market. Socio-demographic characteristics were also associated with filing rates. PHAs that housed greater shares of Black households, households with children, and extremely low-income households had higher eviction filing rates.
