Family market value of housing


This is a 3-digit numeric variable.


HOUSSUB reports the family market value of public housing subsidies. "Family market value" refers to the total monetary value of housing subsidies received by a given family within the household. All members of the same family will have the same HOUSSUB response.

Note that the reference period for HOUSSUB is the previous calendar year, but the reported value is a monthly amount. Please see this forum for more details.

For the SPM measure of family housing assistance, see SPMCAPHOUS.


Aside from the effects of inflation, HOUSSUB is comparable across years.
