Description
  • Abstract

    The American Housing Survey (AHS) is a longitudinal survey sponsored by United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau (Census). It was first conducted annually between 1973 and 1981 and then biennially from 1983 onward. The purpose of the survey is to provide current and continuous series of data on selected housing and demographic characteristics. The AHS collects data on occupied and vacant housing units and the survey is conducted biennially between May and September of odd-numbered years. HUD and Census make the survey data available for public use. To better understand the impact of arts and culture on the United States housing choice, the National Endowment of the Art's Office of Research and Analysis (ORA) worked with HUD and the Census to ask a series of questions in the 2015 AHS. The questions, which form the Arts and Cultural Events Module as a supplement to the core data, were designed to better understand the role of arts and culture in United States households' neighborhood choice, their satisfaction with the arts and cultural activities available in their neighborhood and their perception of the impact of arts and culture on neighborhood economic and community development. For additional information related to the core AHS data, please see ICPSR 36753, American Housing Survey (AHS) - Table Creator. Arts-related variables in the dataset include the importance of living near arts and cultural events, the impact arts and cultural events had on the neighborhood and economy, opportunities for greater interactions, and the encouragement of other people or cultures.

Sampled Universe
Residents of a nationally representative sample of approximately 50,000 housing units. Smallest Geographic Unit: Metropolitan areas
Sampling
The survey collects data every two years from residents of a nationally representative sample of approximately 50,000 housing units using computer-assisted interviewing. Additionally, oversamples of approximately 30,000 housing units in the 15 largest metropolitan areas and about 5,200 United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) assisted units in the country allows for estimation at the national level, the 15 largest metropolitan areas in the country, and HUD-assisted units. The Arts and Culture module was asked of a randomly selected sub-sample of the sample in occupied-unit interviews. Interviews for the core survey were completed with respondents in 60,487 occupied housing units, and 30,296 households in the split sample were eligible to be interviewed for this module. Interviews for the module were completed with about 29,000 households, with just over 1,000 eligible households not responding to the module.
