This new report analyzes the housing and transportation cost burdens of moderate-income households in the 25 largest metro areas at the end of the 2000s. Newly available data give us an opportunity to assess the impact on combined costs of the rapid rise and fall of home prices during the 2000s, the recent increases in rents, and the nation’s increased suburbanization over the past decade.
