Percentage of Households in Public Housing with a Resident who has a Disability, 2016

The data in this map, from the 2017 US HUD Resident Characteristics Report, shows the percentage of all households living in public housing who have someone with a disability. A household can be 1) an individual living alone and 2) a family with a child/children. This includes elderly residents (age 62 and older) that may be living alone, with a spouse and/or with grandchildren. The percentage is based on the total number of all households in public housing. It is a larger proportion than the percentage based on total number of people shown in map 11 because there are many individuals with disabilities, which then count as one household.
