Housing Shifts from Owners to Renters: Household Characteristics 2009 to 2014


This is the second in a series of three factoids detailing a rise of renters in the Housing Industry over the past five years. Since 2009, renting has increased among householders of all ages, marital status, and income level. 

The mix of household characteristics between owners and renters has changed very little in five years. As expected, married-couple families are the majority of owner occupied housing units – accounting for 60 percent in 2014. Surprisingly, householders living alone make up 27.8 percent of all housing units.
