Request #19-1682

I am a PhD student at UIC and we are currently studying Housing Assistantship Waitlist Composition.

I searched through your website; however, I could not find the 4 important information that are key to our study. Hence, under the Under the Freedom of Information Act, I we would like to request the following information:

1.       Size of the waiting list (i.e. Number of households on the waiting list per Housing Assistantship program)

2.       Fraction (%) of the waiting list that has:


2.1.  At least one person with disability


2.2.   At least one elderly member (+65)


2.3.   At least one elderly member (+65) with disability


The ideal dataset would contain data from 2001 to 2019, with a monthly frequency, broken down by housing programs


  • For Housing Vouchers, Jan 2011, 20% of the waiting list was +65, 15% was disabled, and 13% was both old and disabled
  • For Public Housing, Jan 2011, 30% of the waiting list was +65, 25% was disabled, and 10% was both old and disabled

Would you have the above information available or something similar to share with us?

Thank you beforehand for your consideration of this request.
