NCHC’s newly released County Profiles provide a snapshot of housing needs for each of North Carolina’s 100 counties. They provide data on cost-burdened households paying at least 30% of their income for housing, a comparison of what different jobs pay and changes in home prices, foreclosures, and rental options in our communities.
The County Profiles are designed to be used by advocates in their communities and with their local and state elected officials as an education tool around the housing issues we all face in our cities and towns. In addition to the individual county profiles available below, a comparative tool depicting the comprehensive underlying data is available here.
Data for the County Profiles is gathered from a variety of sources including the National Low Income Housing Coalition’s Out of Reach Report, the American Community Survey from the US Census Bureau, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts.
