政府工作报告中"保障性住房"用的是low-income housing, 不知道是否为官方译法?
经济适用住房: affordable housing
廉租房: low-rent housing

Affordable housing
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  (Redirected from Low-income housing)

Distribution of U.S. Median Home ValuesAffordable housing is a term used to describe dwelling units whose total housing costs are deemed "affordable" to a group of people within a specified income range. Although the term is often applied to rental housing that is within the financial means of those in the lower income ranges of a geographical area, the concept is applicable to both renters and purchasers in all income ranges. This article focuses on the affordability of owner-occupied and private rental housing as social housing is a specialised tenure.
In the United States and Canada, a commonly accepted guideline for housing affordability is a housing cost that does not exceed 30% of a household's gross income. Housing costs considered in this guideline generally include taxes and insurance for owners, and usually include utility costs. When the monthly carrying costs of a home exceed 30–35% of household income, then the housing is considered unaffordable for that household.

affordable housing 似乎兼有经济适用房和廉租房的意思。
