HUD Releases Initial Findings of 2013 American Housing Survey
On Oct. 16, HUD and the Census Bureau released the first findings from the 2013 American Housing Survey (AHS). The AHS is the only comprehensive national survey focused on housing. Released every two years, the survey tracks the same units over time, in order to show changes to the housing stock. The 2013 survey included new questions regarding disaster planning and emergency preparedness, public transportation, household involvement in neighborhood and community activities, and “doubled-up” households, focusing on adult children who live at home.
