Special Note:

The 1990 U.S. Census found that more than 2.5 million rural Americans live in substandard housing. This number includes 1 million people who live in housing without kitchen or bathroom facilities and 1.5 million who live in overcrowded conditions. In the Lower Mississippi Delta, for example, 81% or almost 50,000 rural people live in homes without complete plumbing; 80,000 live in crowded conditions which in many rural areas is a form of homelessness.

Additionally, rural renters are more than twice as likely to live in substandard housing as people who own their homes. Rural renters are also more likely than homeowners to suffer from cost overburden, paying between 30 and sometimes more than 50% of their incomes just for housing.
