I perceive that "double up" means grouping immediate and less immediate families into one household. In other words, in American society a family may consist of a husband/wife and children. when the children reach a certain age, IE after completion of higher education or 18 the children will establish their own home leaving the mother/father(partner/companion) and that household.
During the depression, lack of employment led to significant loss of income for many individuals and family members returned to the "original" home to save on mortgage/rent costs. Much like a renter/homeowner looking for a roommate or people who could not afford their own place.
This practice is still in existence to a degree in certain areas of the US where real estate costs are high. Growing up in Hawai'i, I know of several families who have more than one generation of family living in the same home due to housing costs. This was especially evident for non-caucasian citizens of Hawai'i who have strong family bonds.

Yes. Many people during the depression of the 1930s went broke because they had to pay off their bills no matter what, and many of them ended up with no home or not much of one, because they couldn't afford it. Depression or not, debt is still debt.
