NYC voucher tenants in high-poverty areas (2000-2014)

In 2014, 82% of Housing Choice Voucher tenants in New York City lived in high-poverty areas (census tracts where 20% or more of the population is below the poverty line). A smaller proportion of all New Yorkers in poverty lived in high-poverty areas. This gap existed in 2000, narrowed by 2009, and has since widened.
