This guide is just part of a larger DASH Data Guide.

Older housing can impact the quality of the occupant's health in a number of ways, including lead exposure, housing quality, and factors that may exacerbate respiratory conditions, like asthma. Data from the U.S. Census Bureau contains Census Tract estimates of housing age, and Allegheny County assessment data provides parcel-level information on the year residential properties were built.
