Americans support affordable housing, worry about housing costs

We asked, Americans answered 

Should we make room in our communities for affordable homes?


How has the lack of affordable housing and high rent prices affected your life?


What financial setbacks have you experienced since 2008?


Were you unable to pay your rent or mortgage in the past 12 months?
(Or were you forced to reduce spending to make the payment?)

These are findings from an Ipsos Public Affairs poll conducted February 29-March 4, 2016 on behalf of Make
Room. For the survey, a sample of 1,006 adullts 18+ from the continental U.S., Alaska and Hawaii were interviewed
