Visualizing Rent Burdens

by Morgan Stevens
A data visualization on rent burdens

Moody’s, a U.S.-based credit ratings company, has created a series of interactive data visualizations tracking rent prices in the United States. One visualization shows the rental markets where low-income households are rent burdened, meaning they spend more than 30 percent of their household income to rent an average apartment. Rental markets with high rent burdens appear as shades of red, orange, or yellow while rental markets with rent below the 30 percent rent burden threshold appear as blue. According to the visualization, low-income households are rent burdened in 86 percent of rental markets.

Take a look.
