This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "Decency vs. Affordability: A 'Catch-22' in Housing for Douglas County GA Clients?" by R. K. Piper.

This is Part II of an article based on a CAUR study of housing conditions and availability concerning recipients of Dougals County General Assistance payments. Part I (May, 1984) investigated housing conditions and Part II examines availability and costs. The author would like to acknowledge the contributions of Dr. Donald A. Nielson, professor of real estate and land use economics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha; Dr. Pelgy Vaz for her efforts with regard to the study of Omaha World-Herald apartment listings during her employment at CAUR; and Carole Johnson, former graduate student assistant at CAUR.
