In its annual Housing Landscape report, the MacArthur-supported Center for Housing Policy found that, although housing prices have dropped over the past two years, the percentage of households with employed residents under severe stress from housing costs increased significantly between 2008 and 2010.  This trend affected both renters and homeowners, and households earning less than 80 percent of their area’s median income accounted for the entirety of the increase.
