Share of cost burdened renters in the U.S. 2018, by state

In 2018, almost half of all renters in the United States were considered to be either moderately or severely cost-burdened, but there was variation among U.S. states. For instance, 55.7 percent of renters in Puerto Rico were cost-burdened, whereas only 41 percent of South Dakotan renters were considered cost-burdened. A household is considered to be housing cost burdened when the housing costs exceed 30 percent of the family income.
