World AIDS Day

Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS and Fair Housing

December 1 is World AIDS Day, an annual recognition of the impact of the global HIV/AIDS pandemic and an attempt to raise awareness to celebrate successes and encourage continued work to treat, study, and support HIV/AIDS efforts.

In the United States, many of the federal government offices and agencies dedicated to health and human services commemorate this health awareness day. The 2017 theme is “Increasing Impact Through Transparency, Accountability, and Partnerships.”

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development administers the Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Program; this is the only federal program dedicated to the housing needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. You can learn more about eligibility requirements, the rules/regulations, and other aspects of the program here: https://www.hudexchange.info/programs/hopwa/.

Discrimination based on HIV and AIDS is illegal; this includes the unlawful denial of housing or access to housing. Learn more about fair housing and anti-discrimination resources at:

Econometrica offers an array of housing and community development services, including those focused on public and affordable housing. Many of the municipalities and public housing agencies we have worked with offer programs and services through HOPWA funding.

Econometrica’s 15-year legacy of providing American Housing Survey support services continues

Econometrica’s 15-year legacy of providing American Housing Survey support services continues

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) uses a contractor to provide analytical support for the American Housing Survey (AHS). The AHS provides information on the size, composition, and quality of housing; characteristics of occupants and neighborhood; and other descriptive data. It is sponsored by HUD and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau through a nationwide biennial survey and periodic selected metropolitan surveys. Users of the AHS include analysts who support policymakers on housing and related issues, and academic researchers exploring housing conditions and policies. Econometrica’s support for HUD includes quality control and documentation to facilitate users’ proper understanding and interpretation of the data in the AHS, assistance with preparing standardized and specialized reports, and development and maintenance of a bibliography of documents that use the AHS.

Econometrica’s Housing & Community Development Group, led by Dennis Stout and with key support from Dr. Fred Eggers and Dr. Fouad Moumen, has supported HUD on the American Housing Survey (AHS) since 2002. We are familiar with the AHS from both the user’s and the insider’s perspective, including how it is compiled, structured, and coded; HUD’s established methods for analyzing and validating the quality of its data; and the variety of reports that are created by HUD from the AHS, including the Characteristics of HUD-Assisted Renters and Their Units report, the Components of Inventory Change (CINCH) report, the Rental Dynamics report, and other technical reports based on HUD’s research interests. HUD has an arrangement with the U.S. Census Bureau to compile and update AHS data periodically. Econometrica’s role is to perform basic quality control on U.S. Census Bureau data before it is released to the public, as well as perform other supportive tasks, including updating the codebook that the public uses to understand and manipulate AHS data. Other personnel contributing to this work include Tobey Wheelock and Doray Sitko.

On March 29, 2017, the U.S. Census Bureau released the microdata and codebook for the 2015 American Housing Survey, which includes the National Public Use File. The release contains records for the national sample and the 15 largest metropolitan areas, as well as the Metropolitan Public Use File containing records for 10 additional metropolitan areas. Read more about this release and access the files here.
