Curious about how many households in America are bothered by cars honking on their street? Or want to know how many black households in central cities are satisfied with the shopping options in their neighborhood? Check out this great site of data culled from the 1997 American Housing Survey for the United States (AHS). The AHS investigates topics such as the nation's housing inventory, characteristics of occupants, mortgages, rent subsidies, and reasons for moving. Click on "1997 AHS National Tables" to access stats on households based on income, race/ethnicity, and other characteristics. The wide charts can be difficult to read on the screen, so make sure your printer is ready. Links from the Web site also direct visitors to sources for more in-depth information.
