Nevada’s working families spend nearly one-third of their incomes on housing. That’s according to a new study by the Center for Housing Policy, which ranks the Silver State fifth overall for housing costs burdens. Nevada’s numbers have not significantly changed since the recession began in 2008, despite foreclosures, falling incomes and rising rents. California leads the nation in housing burdens, followed by Florida, New Jersey and Hawaii.
