Unless Congress passes an emergency extension, the C.D.C. eviction ban that has been in place in the U.S. since last September will expire on July 31. In most states, landlords will be able to begin eviction proceedings. More than 6 million families, by one estimate, are at risk of being evicted.
A new survey of 1,137 renters, from the data science consultancy Civis Analytics, maps out where Americans are most worried about being kicked out of their home within the next six months. More than a third said that they were “very” or “somewhat” concerned, with a disproportionate number in the South. Georgia topped the list, followed by Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas. (Renters were least concerned in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, Minnesota, and Connecticut.)
