What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of renters who are spending 30% or more of their household income on rent.
Why this is important: 
Spending a high percentage of household income on rent can create financial hardship, especially for lower-income renters. With a limited income, paying a high rent may not leave enough money for other expenses, such as food, transportation and medical. Moreover, high rent reduces the proportion of income a household can allocate to savings each month.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 3,143 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
