Characteristics of the residential baseline survey samples for site I
A sample of 4,613 properties containing 8,168 sampled housing units was drawn from a screener list to provide baseline survey data for the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment in Brown County, Wisconsin. To ensure valid generalization from the sample properties to the local housing market as a whole, each of 16 strata was analyzed for numerical representation of the population, geographical distribution, and characteristics of housing units including type of unit, tenure, rent or value, number of rooms, and quality. Three additional strata received equal attention: rooming houses, mobile homes, and seasonal properties. Each stratum was classified according to household size, income, laborforce participation, incidence of special household types, and estimated number of households eligible for participation in the allowance program. A special sample was drawn as a comparability panel to be examined in conjunction with a parallel group participating in the Demand Experiment.
