12/01/2006

Sponsor: U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
Description: The Picture of Subsidized Households (1998) presents summary information reported by subsidized housing programs across the nation. The program data included in the data set comes from five different sources:
  1. Indian Housing
  2. Public Housing
  3. Section 8 housing (including Section 8 Certificates and Vouchers, Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation, and Section 8 New Construction or Substantial Rehabilitation)
  4. Federal Housing Administration (FHA) (including Section 236 projects and other FHA projects with subsidy such as Section 8 Loan Management, Rental Assistance Program (RAP), Rent Supplement, Property Disposition, etc.)
  5. Low Income Housing Tax Credit

The data file and reports cover about four and a half million HUD-subsidized housing units, and a third of a million housing units assisted by Low Income Housing Tax Credits, for a total of nearly five million subsidized housing units.

Relevant Policy Issues: Income Status, Economic Assistance Program Participation Rates, and Housing Quality.
Data Type(s): Program reporting data
Unit of Analysis: Housing subsidy program
Identification of AI/AN/NA: The 1998 data set includes the percent of Native Americans (defined as American Indians and Alaska Natives) living in subsidized housing in 1998.
AI/AN/NA Population in Data Set: This data set is summary data rather than raw data, and as such, does not provide counts of AI/AN/NA persons but does provide the percentage of Native Americans living in subsidized housing. Of all those living in subsidized housing in 1998, across all types of subsidized housing, 1 percent were Native American. Of those living in Indian housing, 89 percent were Native American.
Geographic Scope: The geographic scope of the study is national. Geographic indicators available in the data include latitude, longitude, zip code, county, MSA, census tract, and Congressional district.
Date or Frequency: The data used in this report and compiled into the data set are collected continuously and only periodically compiled into the report and data sets. A Picture of Subsidized Households previously was produced the 1970s and in 1996, and 1997. A Picture of Subsidized Households: 2000 and A Picture of Subsidized Households: 2004 are forthcoming (both are expected by the end of the 2006 calendar year). These reports will not contain any data on Indian Housing but will include information on American Indians, Alaska Natives, and other Native Americans living in non-Indian Housing. Tentative plans to release A Picture of Subsidized Households reports biennially are under consideration.
Data Collection Methodology: Subsidized housing programs submit reports to HUD.
Participation: Mandatory
Strengths: Data are collected on key policy issues regarding housing. There are multiple years of data available.
Limitations: These data do not include any information on Native Hawaiians or other Pacific Islanders living in subsidized housing.
Access Requirements and Use Restrictions: Data set is available to public at no cost.
