ACS Table for Severe Housing Burden

There are a variety of tables similar to "PERCENT OF RENTER-OCCUPIED UNITS SPENDING 30 PERCENT OR MORE OF HOUSEHOLD INCOME ON RENT AND UTILITIES", but is anyone aware of a table to includes spending of 50 percent or more of household income in rent?

This report on homelessness directs readers to the 2016 ACS 1-Year Estimates, but I can not locate a table that displays 50 percent or more on rent.

  • Check out Table B25070 Gross rent as a percentage of household income.

    Thank you. Is there a table for this by poverty level?

    There is another data set you might want to look at to supplement the ACS table. This is the Consolidated Planning data set, with is a recompilation of ACS data done for HUD. There are a number of tables that report whether households spend more than 30% and 50% of income on housing costs. Renters vs owners is one of the primary distinctions made in the data. While poverty level is not used as a parameter, percentage of area median income (which differs from ACS median household income) is used. Table 11 reports rent burden for households earning less than 20% of AMI, which gets close to poverty level in my region (Boston) and might even be below in yours.
