Albuquerque's homeowner housing burden ranked 5th among peer communities in 2011, but was lower than the national average. Compared to our peer cities, Albuquerque is on the high end for the percent of residents who pay 30% or more of their income for rental costs. Albuquerque is average among peer cities for overcrowded and substandard housing and better than the national rate.
