This report presents data from the American Housing Survey, which was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. It was prepared primarily under the direction of Ronald J. Sepanik, Director, Housing and Demographic Analysis Division, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Daniel H. Weinberg, then Chief, Housing and Household Economic Statistics Division, Census Bureau. Ronald J. Sepanik, assisted by David Vandenbroucke and Carolyn Lynch, was responsible for overseeing the American Housing Survey resultant report on behalf of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Major Changes
INCOME In 2004, information on whether or not a resident of the housing unit received Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments was collected in a separate category. In 2003 and earlier, the receipt of SSI payments was collected in a combined category that included public assistance and welfare payments. For detailed definitions of income categories, see Appendix A. REPLACEMENTS AND ADDITIONS In 2004, the question, ‘‘Was that wall-to-wall carpeting installed over existing, finished flooring, or was that put down over bare sub-flooring, such as concrete or unfinished wood?’’ was no longer asked. The question, ‘‘In the last two years, have you installed any wall-to-wall carpeting?’’ was still part of the survey. For a detailed definition of replacements and additions, see Appendix A.

Geographical Definitions of 2004 AHS Metropolitan Areas
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and U.S. Census Bureau

Explanations and Cautions
EXPLANATIONS Survey authority and confidentiality. The U.S. Census Bureau conducts the American Housing Survey (AHS) to obtain up-to-date housing statistics for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Title 12, Sections 1701Z-1 and 1701Z-2g of the U.S. Code authorize the Secretary of HUD to collect data from public and private agencies and protect the confidentiality of the data. Title 12, Section 1701Z-10 mandates the collection of the data for the AHS. The guarantee of confidentiality made to respondents is provided by the Census Bureau. Title 13, Section 9a, of the U.S. Code provides that all information that would permit identification of individuals will be held in strict confidence. Such information may be seen only by individuals sworn to uphold the confidentiality of Census Bureau information and may be used only for statistical purposes. Section 214 of Title 13 sets penalties for disclosing confidential information. Unauthorized disclosure of individual information by a person sworn to uphold the confidentiality of Census Bureau information is punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 or imprisonment of up to 5 years, or both. The Census Bureau is authorized under Title 31, Section 1535 of the U.S. Code, to perform special work or services for other federal agencies. Contents of book. This book presents data on apartments; single-family homes; manufactured/mobile homes; vacant housing units; age, sex, and race of householders; income; housing and neighborhood quality; housing costs; equipment and fuels; and size of the housing units. The book also presents data on mortgages, rent control, rent subsidies, previous unit of recent movers, and reasons for moving. Scope of the survey. The AHS is conducted by field representatives who obtain information from occupants of homes. They get information on vacant homes from informed people such as landlords, rental agents, or knowledgeable neighbors. Interviewing occurred from May 30 through September 8. The sample sizes for the metropolitan areas range from 1,300 to 3,500 addresses. See Appendix B for details. CAUTIONS Sampling and nonsampling errors. The numbers in this book may have errors from sampling and other causes (incomplete data, wrong answers, etc.). Explanations and Cautions
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and U.S. Census Bureau

Appendix D gives more detailed formulas to calculate errors for a wide range of items. Appendix D also gives some estimates of nonsampling errors. Undercoverage and nonresponse. Each home in the AHS sample represents a large number of other homes. However, because of incomplete sampling lists (i.e., undercoverage) and nonresponse, the homes in the survey do not represent all homes in the country. Therefore, the raw numbers from the survey are raised proportionally so that the published numbers match independent estimates of the total number of homes. These independent estimates are based on Census 2000, plus changes since then. Housing unit undercoverage and household nonresponse is about 11 percent. Compared to the level derived from the adjusted Census 2000 counts, housing unit undercoverage alone is about 2.2 percent. The weighting procedures used for AHS-National partially correct for the bias due to nonresponse and housing unit undercoverage, but not for within-household undercoverage. The procedures assume the housing units missed by the survey are like those included, which is not entirely accurate. Housing-unit undercoverage varies by age, ethnicity, and race of householder, and by type of household. For some groups, such as Black alone, the undercoverage is at least 9 percent. Some AHS estimates are affected by missed persons within sample households. These are persons per room, square feet per person, some household composition items (for example, persons per household), and income characteristics. We do not know the effect of this within-household undercoverage on these characteristics. Appendix D shows how complete the answers were for each question, before adjustments. Appendix B explains how the numbers were proportionally adjusted. Income and poverty. Historically, the AHS underestimates income and overestimates poverty when compared to the Current Population Survey (CPS). The AHS mentions fewer sources of income than the Annual Social and Economic Supplement to the CPS. The poverty data in the AHS are not published as an official count of households in poverty, but to show the housing characteristics of lowincome households. For a discussion of income and poverty, see Appendix C. A detailed discussion of AHS income data is presented in the Census Bureau memorandum for the record, ‘‘Comparison of 1989 AHS and CPS Income Reporting.’’ The memorandum for the record, ‘‘AHS Poverty Data, 1985 to 1993,’’ vii

presents a detailed discussion of AHS poverty data. Copies of both memoranda can be obtained by writing to the Housing and Household Economic Statistics Division (HHES) at the address given in the table below. DATA AVAILABILITY The AHS data are presented nationally as well as for major selected metropolitan areas (see table below). The table below shows the sources for obtaining AHS data, the product available, and the pricing for each product. Each source or organization sets its own charges, so prices may vary among the sources.

microdata are available on tapes and on CD-ROMs so that data can be tabulated in any way desired. Microdata are also available on the Internet for 1997 and beyond. National data tables are on the Internet for 1973 and beyond. Contact HHES for more details. The Census Act prohibits the release of individually identifiable data. The Census Bureau uses statistical methods prior to data release to ensure respondents’ confidentiality. In addition to using statistical methods, the names and addresses of respondents, and areas smaller than 100,000 people are not identified. The sample design generally will not support analysis for areas smaller than those shown in the books.

1 The American Housing Surveys for 1999 and 2001 issued CD-ROMs titled ‘‘Table Generating Data Disk.’’ These CDs contain a special type of database file called an EXTRACT. This file allows users to create their own tables (cross tabulations) with the built-in software. On these CDs, there are data tables that users can manipulate to show selected information, to form graphs, and to print. Included also on these CDs is the microdata file in both SAS and ASCII formats along with the associated documentation. The publications also are included. 2 Ask for U.S. Census Bureau series H150 and H151. Depository libraries may order Superintendent of Documents prefix C3.215. Libraries often keep national books in a special catalog and section for U.S. Government documents. Metropolitan reports may be located in the general catalog since these are not published by the Superintendent of Documents.
