NLIHC has posted updated Congressional District Profiles for 2015 that include the new members of the 114th Congress, who took office on January 3, 2015. The profiles are one-page snapshots of affordable rental housing and related data for each of the 435 Congressional Districts.
The profiles contain data on housing cost burden and the shortage of affordable and available units by income group, using Comprehensive Housing Affordability Strategy (CHAS) data for 2007-2011. CHAS data are custom tabulations of Census data focusing on housing need and problems. Each profile also contains selected data from NLIHC’s Out of Reach for Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and counties that fall into each Congressional District. The profiles also have state-level data on housing cost burden and the shortage of affordable and available units by income group from the 2012 American Community Survey.
