SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24: HOME OWNERSHIP

Profile America Sunday, February 24th.  Even with the ongoing difficulties in the housing and mortgage industries, the American dream is still defined by many as owning your own home.  Across the U.S., just over 65 percent of households own their homes, a decline of more than 1 percent since the year 2000.  Among the states, the highest percentage of home ownership is in West Virginia, at more than 73 percent, while the lowest rate is in New York, at just over 53 percent.  And New York City tops the nation in the highest percentage of renting households, at 69 percent.  Among the nation's 37 million African-Americans, around 45 percent live in their own homes, while 20 million are renters.  You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at www.census.gov.
