Static Income, Rising Costs: Renting in the Heart of the Commonwealth

Renter-households in Worcester have become increasingly cost-burdened since 2010; their costs have increased while their wages have remained static in terms of inflation-adjusted dollars. Static Income, Rising Costs: Renting in the Heart of the Commonwealth examines the state of those households in Worcester, compares Worcester to similar cities throughout the region, and analyzes Worcester’s renter-households across time with the first publication of the 1936 redlining map of the city.
