PSH = Permanent Supportive Housing. AMI = Area Median Income.

All estimates based on 2021 data unless stated otherwise.
The FICO® Score is the consumer credit score used by most U.S. banks and credit grantors. It is based on data gathered by third-party consumer credit reporting agencies.
Selected homeowner costs include mortgage payments, property taxes, utilities, and condominium or mobile home fees (if applicable).
Gross rent includes average monthly cost of utilities (i.e., electricity, natural gas, water, sewer, and heating fuels).
Severe housing cost burden is defined as spending at least 50 percent of income on housing costs or having no income.
Extremely low-income (ELI) is defined as those with incomes at or below the federal poverty level or 30% AMI, whichever is greater. Rental units are both "affordable and available" to ELI renters if the gross rent meets the 30% affordability threshold and they are either available for rent or occupied by ELI renters.
The eviction filing rate is the number of new eviction filings per 100 renter-occupied households. In Ohio an eviction is legally referred to as a "forcible entry and detainer" or F.E.D..
Students meet the McKinney-Vento definition of homeless when they lack a fixed, regular, adequate nighttime residence. Students who are sharing the housing of another person (doubled up) due to loss of housing, economic hardship or similar reason meet the definition of homeless. This includes students living in motels, hotels, RV parks or campgrounds due to lack of alternative adequate accommodations, as well as those living in emergency or transitional shelters or abandoned in hospitals.
A 2013 study from The Ohio State University found that the share of homes built before 1950 was the most important predictor of elevated blood lead levels (EBLLs) in Ohio children under 6. Those homes predate the earliest laws in the United States restricting the use of lead paint in housing, which were enacted in the 1950s in some cities. Pre-1950 homes are also more likely to have chipped paint or lead-contaminated dust which can be ingested by young children. The use of lead paint in housing was finally banned nationally in 1978 by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. As such homes built between 1950 to 1979 are considered to pose moderate levels of risk to young children; homes built prior to 1950 are considered to be pose a greater risk.
Older adults are defined as those aged 55 years or over.
Some estimates calculated using geographic correspondence files from the Missouri Census Data Center at the University of Missouri to "crosswalk" the data from Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs) to legislative districts.
Inflationary adjustments for rent overtime are based on the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U), from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, for "all items less shelter."
