The National Rental Housing Landscape, released annually by the NYU Furman Center, was expanded in 2017 to include all 53 U.S. metros with over one million people, which contained 165 million people (65 million households) and covered 63% of the U.S. population. The report observes trends and makes available data on renter demographics, renter households, renter housing affordability, and the rental housing stock for each of the 53 metro areas in the sample. The report, maps, and data are available at RentalHousingLandscape.org.
The 2017 National Rental Housing Landscape report finds that the majority of large U.S. metros saw an increase in the share of households that rented their homes, which was largely driven by rise in higher-income and highly-educated households choosing to rent. Affordability challenges persist for low-income households, with high rent premiums for movers and historically high rent burdens across U.S. metros.
This briefing webinar, presented by NYU Furman Center researchers on Tuesday, October 7, 2017 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET, is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required.
