Fact Sheet: Union City Renter Data

Overview

This fact sheet was created in partnership with Filipino Advocates for Justice and RISE to support their work to advance policies that protect renters. Key findings include:

  • Renters are an important and growing constituency in Union City, but 51 percent of them pay too much for housing.
  • Rent affordability is a racial equity issue: people of color face the steepest rent burdens.
  • Renters have experienced a 15 percent increase in median rent and a 69 percent increase in households that are rent burdened since 2000.
