Abstract

​Summary: Latinxs are vulnerable to experiencing housing insecurity and less likely to receive public benefits, such as health insurance, which can impact a household's economic resources. Authors inform homelessness prevention by examining the association of social risks and health care access with housing insecurity for Latinxs. The study's sample consisted of 120,362 participants under the age of 65, of which 17.3% were Latinx. Housing insecurity was measured as worry about paying for housing. 

Findings: Latinxs were almost twice as likely as non-Latinxs to worry about paying for housing. Excellent/fair health status, health service use, and having health insurance decreased the likelihood of housing insecurity for Latinxs. Access to health insurance, regardless of citizenship status, and use of preventative health care to maintain good health can be protective against housing insecurity.
