Owner Occupied Housing as a Percentage of Total Housing Units

Time Range: 2006-2010       Resolution: Census Block Group

This indicator measures the percent of all housing units that are owner-occupied. It reflects the number of homeowners who are the principal residents of the home, out of all housing units in the area.

Rationale

The percent of properties that are owner-occupied is an indicator of affordability and turnover. It is a standard indicator to understand the level of investment (both time and money) and whether people are able to afford to own property in the area.
