Housing is considered to be affordable when a household spends less than 30% of its pre-tax income on it; housing is considered to be adequate when it does not need major repairs; and housing is considered to be suitable (i.e., not crowded) when it has a sufficient number of bedrooms for the size and composition of the household.
