Abstract: During summer 2016, an email audit experiment was conducted to examine discrimination rates for Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) holders searching for private market rental units. The analysis focuses on the behavior of landlords responding to email audit tester inquiries about apartments advertised online in fourteen different metro areas that differ in the types of local and state Source of Income (SOI) protections in place. Tester emails varied in the race of sender (conveyed through name) and whether the sender disclosed HCV status.
