The State Of The Nation's Housing, 2004

The housing industry is well positioned for another strong decade according to the latest report from the Harvard Joint Center For Housing Studies.

Women and minorities will play a larger role in housing’s future, according to the 2004 State of the Nation’s Housing report released by Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. Minorities, which accounted for 27 percent of households in 2003, will contribute at least two-thirds of net household growth in the coming decades. This report uses statistics and trends to describe the current state of housing in the US. It includes income and housing costs, median net wealth of owner and renter households, lowest-income households by cost burdens, tenure choices of recent movers, median net wealth and homeownership rates by age and race/ethnicity, home prices by region and metropolitan area, and more.
