Children Living in Crowded Households, by City, School District and County (10,000 Residents or More)
Definition: Estimated percentage of children under age 18 living in households with more than one person per room of the house (e.g., in 2010-2014, 28.1% of California children lived in households with more than one person per room). “Rooms” include living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, finished recreation rooms, enclosed porches, and lodger’s rooms.
Footnote: The U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development considers a household crowded if there is more than one person per room. The number of persons per room is calculated by dividing the number of occupants by the number of rooms. Data are displayed for geographies with at least 10,000 people based on 2014 population estimates. These estimates are based on a survey of the population and are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. LNE (Low Number Event) refers to estimates that have been suppressed because the margin of error was greater than 5 percentage points. N/A means that data are not available. Some regions listed are Census Designated Places (CDPs), such as East Los Angeles; CDPs are communities within the unincorporated part of a county.
