Housing Affordability

Erie performs well on housing affordability. In the Erie metro area, 71.2% of households paid less than 30% of their income for housing in 2014. That compares favorably with 68.2% in PA statewide, and only 65.6% in the U.S. overall. Regarding Erie’s Peer Areas, Erie’s rate was higher than that of nine of its peers, and better than the 69.1% average rate for the 13 peers. Erie’s housing affordability has mostly been on the rise since its low point of 67.3% in 2011.
