Rent burdened households by age, New York City

Rent burdened households by age, New York City

Source: American Community Survey (accessed via American Fact Finder)

Interpretation of NYC example

About 60 percent of senior renter households in New York City were rent burdened in 2016, compared to 53.4 percent of all renter households. The share of senior households that were rent burdened remained higher than that for all New York City renter households since at least 2006.

How to construct

This data is downloaded from American Fact Finder. Specifically, data is obtained for New York City from TABLE B25072 AGE OF HOUSEHOLDER BY GROSS RENT AS A PERCENTAGE OF HOUSEHOLD INCOME IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS for the one-year ACS estimates for 2006 and 2016. The share of rent-burdened households is calculated by dividing the number of rent-burdened renters (spends more than 30 percent of income on rent) over the total number of renters citywide. The share of rent-burdened senior households is calculated by dividing the number of rent-burdened seniors (spends more than 30 percent of income on rent) over the total number of rent-burdened renters.

Figure notes

Data are shown for one specific area (New York City in this case). The data are displayed as a column chart with two columns each representing the share of rent-burdened senior households and the share of rent-burdened households for 2006 and 2016.
