Webinar on the Center for Housing Policy's Paycheck to Paycheck database
OCTOBER 29, 2013 - 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET
On Tuesday, October 29, The Center for Housing Policy will host a webinar and demonstration of the online, interactive Paycheck to Paycheck database. Paycheck to Paycheck uses data from the first quarter of 2013 to reveal the gap between wages and the costs of housing, both rental and owned, in 207 U.S. metro areas.
When full-time wages are not sufficient to afford housing, the health and vitality of America's communities suffer. Unfortunately, renting or buying typical housing in many U.S. metro areas requires higher than median earnings for police officers, nurses, teachers, janitors, and other key roles that make our communities safe, healthy, and vibrant places to live.
The webinar will include a demonstration of the Paycheck to Paycheck database (available at www.nhc.org/paycheck). We will also explore key findings from "A Snapshot of Metropolitan Housing Affordability for Travel and Tourism Workers" the report that accompanied the release of Paycheck to Paycheck 2013 and examined the housing affordability gap for travel and tourism workers.
