Home Improvements

Component ID: #ti1455019323

Resource Description

When faced with a choice, many homeowners decide to improve their homes, rather than move. They modernize the kitchen, replace the roof, finish the basement, add a bathroom, or make their homes more energy-efficient. The American Housing Survey (AHS), jointly administered by the Census Bureau and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, tracks home improvements as well as a variety of other housing topics. This infographic visually summarizes the results of the 2011 AHS in an accessible format.
