American Eviction 1

The Eviction Lab has built the US’s only eviction database, collecting collected data dating back to the year 2000. America's “eviction epidemic" is displayed on this interactive map to help public sector leaders better understand the depth, breadth, and complexity of the eviction crisis. This interactive tool allows users to explore original eviction data and census information on the national, state and county levels. Users can view eviction filing rates or actual eviction rates and see how those rates compare when layered with census data like rent burden, poverty rates, median gross rent, median household income and population demographics.
