A ratio of 2-in-3 U.S. householders (69.8 million or 66.2 percent) owned their homes last year, according to new analysis of Census 2000 data released today by the Commerce Department's Census Bureau.
The analysis showed a total of 115.9 million housing units in the United States in 2000, an increase of 13.6 million units or 13.3 percent since 1990. During the same period, the increase in owner-occupied homes - 10.8 million, or 18.3 percent - far outpaced the rise in renter-occupied units - 2.7 million, or 8.3 percent. Rental units totaled 35.7 million.
One in a series of Census 2000 briefs, the analysis, titled Housing Characteristics: 2000, shows that the South (17.5 percent) and the West (16.7 percent) regions experienced higher rates of housing growth than the Midwest (10.1 percent) and Northeast (6.6 percent).
