Housing Affordability 1991 Description

Who Can Afford to Buy a House in 1991?

This report is the second in a series dealing with homeownership affordability. Using the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), it presents a microlevel analysis of affordability by "qualifying" individual families and unrelated individuals for the purchase of several criterion homes in the area where they live. By utilizing information on income, assets, and debts, the report shows whether the family or individual could qualify using both conventional and FHA mortgage guidelines for a 30-year mortgage.

The tables and appendices included in this section are from the report issued in July 1993.
