March 8, 2011:  Furman Center researchers presented two new studies highlighting creative ways to use AHS data at the inaugural U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development American Housing Survey (AHS) User Conference in Washington, DC. Keren Horn presented “Urban ‘Pioneers’: Why do Higher Income Households Choose Lower Income Neighborhoods?” which uses AHS data to study households who move into neighborhoods with lower incomes than their own in 1991-1995 and 2001-2005.  Samuel Dastrup presented “Household Energy Bills and Subsidized Housing” which studies incentives that federal housing assistance programs create for whether tenants or landlords pay utility bills and for subsequent energy consumption.
