1950 Census of Housing: Volume 4. Residential Financing: Mortgaged Nonfarm Properties

This volume presents data relating to the characteristics of the financing of residential nonfarm properties for the United States, for each of the four regions, and for each of 25 large standard metropolitan areas. The data are based on tabulations from the Residential Financing Survey, which was part of the 1950 Census of Housing, taken as of April 1, 1950.

Volume IV comprises two parts. Part 1 contains data on interrelationships of various characteristics of the property, the owner, and the mortgage for the United States and the four regions. Part 2 contains less extensive data for each of the 25 largest standard metropolitan areas according to the 1940 population, and comparable data for the United States.
