Mapping New England: rent as a percentage of income, by county
Abstract: The maximum rent in public housing, established by the 1981 Housing and Community Development Act, is 30 percent of family income. Using that as a benchmark for all renters?and looking at the American Community Survey?s data on gross rent as a percentage of income? can suggest the rent burden for New Englanders. Gross rent includes estimated utility payments, often a large percentage of the rent in lower-rent households.
