HUD Datasets

HUD USER provides interested researchers with access to the original data sets generated by PD&R-sponsored data collection efforts, including the American Housing Survey, HUD median family income limits, as well as microdata from research initiatives on topics such as housing discrimination, the HUD-insured multifamily housing stock, and the public housing population.

To help users identify which data are useful to them, two matrices are provided — one for PD&R data sets and a second that lists other available data from HUD. In these reference guides, each data set is rated by its relevance and usefulness for research in the designated categories.
