Provides estimates of the scale and cost of the experimental housing allowance programs that were originally proposed for Green Bay, Wisconsin, and Saginaw, Michigan, as part of the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment. Estimates are based on tabulations from the 1970 Census of 1969 incomes by household size and estimates of the standard cost of adequate housing by size of household, based on 1969 data compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Although this Note relies on the same basic data as did earlier RAND estimates for 1969-70, it attempts for the first time to project the estimates to 1974 and 1979, the expected first and last years of program operation in the proposed sites.
This report is part of the RAND Corporation Note series. The note was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1979 to 1993 that reported other outputs of sponsored research for general distribution.
