Maya Brennan serves as a research associate for the Center for Housing Policy. Barbara J. Lipman is the research director for the Center for Housing Policy. This report examines questions such as: How many low- to moderate-income working families pay more than half their income for housing or live in severely substandard housing? Has this situation gotten better or worse over the past few years? What are housing conditions like in major metropolitan areas across the country? Overall, the report documents a 73 percent increase in the number of working families with critical housing needs between 1997 and 2005.
