Percentage of Homeownership by Decade and by State

20161027-Share-KCM.jpg
Not all of GPS's blogs have compelling headlines, but home ownership rates vary greatly, both over time and by where you live. There has been a lot of talk about the falling home ownership rate in the United States. In December 2004, the home ownership rate reached an all-time high of 69.4%, while the current rate is 62.9%. When comparing these two figures, there is some room for concern regarding the difference.

However, today GPS wants to shine some light on the issue by:

  1. Showing what historic home ownership rates have looked like over the last 130 years.
  2. Breaking down the current percentages by state.

Historic Home Ownership Rates:

Percentage of Homeownership by Decade and by State | Keeping Current Matters

Current Home Ownership Rates by State:

Percentage of Homeownership by Decade and by State | Keeping Current Matters

All of the states that you see in blue on the map above have a greater home ownership rate than the national average.

GPS Says:

Though the home ownership rate has fallen recently, the percentage is still at a healthy rate compared to historic numbers, and most states currently have a higher percentage than the national average.
