Percentages of moderately rent-burdened households specifically used 30.0 to 49.9 percent, while percentages of severely rent-burdened households specifically used 50.0 percent or greater.

The percentages of rent-burdened households were made using “GROSS RENT AS A PERCENTAGE OF HOUSEHOLD INCOME IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS“, adding the number of households spending 30% or more of their income, then dividing by the total number of households. Percentages of moderately rent-burdened households specifically used 30.0 to 49.9 percent, while percentages of severely rent-burdened households specifically used 50.0 percent or greater.
