The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has released a report analyzing trends in affordable rental units. The report, Rental Market Dynamics, uses data from the American Housing Survey to examine changes from 2009 to 2011.

The report finds an increase of one million affordable units but a decline in the affordable share of overall rental units, from 44.8% to 43.7%. It ascribes this trend to falling homeownership rates.
