Component ID: #ti1407477671

The U.S. Census Bureau’s housing data present a comprehensive picture of housing in America. You will find a wide range of data on the size, age and type of American homes; home values, rents and mortgages; the housing and construction industry; and more.

We measure the housing and construction industry, track homeownership rates, and produce statistics on both the physical and financial characteristics of our homes. Together, these statistics present a comprehensive picture of housing in America, allowing data-driven decision-making at all levels of government.

The key housing information we release is critical to measuring our national economy. The housing industry represents more than a quarter of our nation’s total investment dollars and about 5 percent of our total economy.
