Study: Renters with Children More Likely to Report Asthma Issues than Homeowners
A recent study from the Urban Institute entitled, “The Relationship between Housing and Asthma among School-Age Children,” used data from the 2015 American Housing Survey (AHS) to explore connections between housing and childhood asthma. The study found that that renters with children are more likely than homeowners with children to report asthma triggers, like exposure to smoke, mold, leaks, and roaches or rodents, in their homes and to have at least one child with asthma.
