There has been a lot of talk about the falling homeownership rate in the United States. In December 2004, the homeownership 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.

  1. Showing what historic homeownership rates have looked like over the last 130 years.

  2. Breaking down the current percentages by state.
