In 2013, 36% (26 mil­lion) of U.S. kids lived in house­holds that expe­ri­enced a high hous­ing cost bur­den. This is a 8% drop from 2008, rep­re­sent­ing 3 mil­lion chil­dren. Dis­crep­an­cies in hous­ing costs by race were preva­lent. Fifty per­cent of African-Amer­i­can and 47% of Lati­no chil­dren lived in house­holds that spent more than 30% of their month­ly income on hous­ing and relat­ed expens­es, com­pared to 27% of white children.
