Tenants renting at market rates had the highest burden of housing costs in 2014. That year the median market rate tenant spent 24.3% of her disposable income on housing costs and 18.7% of the group spent 40% or more. The burden of housing costs for both tenants renting at market rates and those renting at reduced rates rose sharply after 2007.
