Today’s (Mon Feb 27) Chronicle has an article about the high cost of housing in San Francisco:
Cost of housing among area’s top woes
Survey cites it as major reason 2 of 5 residents consider leaving

“You’re not the only one dreaming of ditching the Bay Area for a Midwestern college town or a coastal city in the Southeast.
Two out of five residents of the nine-county region have given serious thought to moving away — mostly because of high housing costs, according to a survey released today by a business and public policy group.
The Bay Area Council’s annual poll found that concerns about housing ranked as the region’s second-most-vexing problem, behind transportation woes.”
What I find interesting is that when you look at the county by county results (see links below), the percentage of people in San Francisco who rank high cost of housing as their #1 problem is only 20%.
