Discrimination Complaints Hit a Record
Apparently, it's still a booming market for housing discrimination.
There were 10,552 formal complaints of housing discrimination during fiscal year 2008, which ended Sept. 30. That's a record, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which recently published the numbers as part of an annual report to Congress.
People with disabilities filed the largest number of complaints, 44 percent. People complaining of racial discrimination filed the second-largest share, 35 percent. Complaints based on family status comprised 16 percent, followed by national origin, sex, retaliation, religion and color.
