Housing Tenure, Expenditure, and Satisfaction Across Hispanic, African-American, and White Households: Evidence from the American Housing Survey
AbstractA number of interesting differences in housing circumstances between Hispanic, African-American, and white households are revealed as a result of this analysis. The analysis presented in this report has two primary components. In the first part of the study, the likelihood of ownership, levels of house prices (for owners) and contract rent (for renters) were considered across race/ethnicity for both the full sample and the subset of recent movers. The second part of the analysis focuses on differences in ordinal rankings (on a scale of 1 to 10) of structural and neighborhood quality between Hispanics, African-American, and white households.
