Location Affordability in Large U.S. Cities: Variability Among Types of Households

This brief looks at location affordability in New York City. It looks at seven different household types: very low-income single worker, single worker, low-income family, regional moderate, single professional, retirees, and dual-income family. For each type of household, housing and transportation costs are compared to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Location Affordability Index for 21 other large cities. It is determined that low transportation costs make New York City more affordable than many other large cities.
