Transportation’s Role in Affordable Housing

Traditional measures of residential affordability only consider whether a household pays more than 30 percent of their income on housing, however given the interconnectedness of where people live and work, some have argued for including transportation costs in residential affordability evaluations. As a result, a more complete understanding of affordable housing in Connecticut requires an understanding and consideration of transportation costs faced by the typical worker and by CHFA borrowers and tenants.

A Look at rural housing in Connecticut

In Connecticut, much of the analysis done following the financial crisis has focused on the statewide impact and recovery.  Less attention has been paid to individual counties, or the State’s very distinct urban, suburban, and rural communities. This report takes a closer look at how rural towns throughout Connecticut were impacted by and have recovered from the financial crisis by looking at Census data from 2011 and 2016.

Homeownership by Generation

We investigate how homeownership in CT is changing by using the Pew Research Center definition for each generation’s age grouping and analyzing data from the Census Bureau.  Homeownership among Generation X increased as the youngest of the group became 36 and the oldest reached their 50s. The oldest millennials are 35 in 2016, the most recent year for which there is data. Although Millennial homeownership rates have increased, it’s too early to know if they will keep pace with Generation X. Baby Boomers were primarily middle aged from 2006 to 2016 and their homeownership rate remained consistent. As more of the Silent Generation moved into its 80s, homeownership declined.

Home mortgage lending is broken up into three categories, home purchase loans, home improvement loans, and refinance loans. Lenders report on all applications they receive, whether they are approved, denied, or withdrawn. Lenders report their past years lending activity by March 1st (e.g. 2016 lending activity was reported on March 1, 2017). The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council makes the data public the following autumn.
