The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development has released a working paper of the 2006-2010 Comprehensive Housing Affordability Strategy (CHAS) data. CHAS data serves the unique purpose of providing analysis of the housing needs of low- and moderate – income households. It combines data from the American Community Survey with HUD’s adjusted median family incomes (HAMFI) to create estimates of households that would qualify for HUD assistance.
This working paper provides an analysis of the affordability of the housing stock and the extent to which affordable units are available to lower income households.
