The Receipt of Subsidized Housing across Generations

The Receipt of Subsidized Housing across Generations In this paper, I ask whether children who grow up in subsidized housing return to the program as adults.

Abstract

In this paper, I ask whether children who grow up in subsidized housing return to the program as adults. I use the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) and Inverse Probability of Treatment Weighting (IPTW) to compare children who grew up in subsidized housing to those who did not but lived in households eligible to receive the subsidy. I find that children who grew up in subsidized housing have small albeit statistically significant probabilities of returning to subsidized housing as adults.
