This report is Part 1 of Volume V. It is the source of 1960 Census of Housing statistics on the financing of nonfarm homeowner properties. As the term is used in this report, a homeowner property has one to four dwelling units, one of which is occupied by an owner. The statistics presented in this report relate to the manner of acquiring the property, mortgage status at the time of the survey, and selected characteristics of the property, the owner, and the mortgage. Similar data for renter-occupied and vacant properties are presented in Part 2 of Volume V.

This report presents for 1- to 4-dwelling unit and separately for 1-dwelling unit homeowner properties data on the number of nonmortgaged and mortgaged properties and on the amount of outstanding debt on the mortgaged properties. Cross-tabulations by selected mortgage, property, and owner characteristics are shown for the 1-unit homeowner properties.

Four basic types of tables are provided—U.S. total, U.S. total inside standard metropolitan statistical areas, geographic regions, and selected metropolitan areas. The latter include the standard metropolitan statistical areas (SMSA's) of Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Buffalo, Cleveland, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles-Long Beach, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, San Francisco-Oakland, Seattle, and Washington (D.C.-Md.-Va.) ; and the two standard consolidated areas (SCA's)—Chicago Northwestern Indiana and New York-Northeastern New Jersey.

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
