Temporal and ethnic decompositions of homeownership rates: Synthetic cohorts across five censuses

  • Coulson, N. Edward
  • Dalton, Maurice

We perform probit-based Oaxaca-Fairlie decompositions of the change in ownership rates for four ethnic groups and three age groups over five censuses, and then construct second-order decompositions of the white/non-white differentials. There is substantial heterogeneity in how Hispanic, Asian and Black households of various age cohorts converge to and diverge from their white counterparts with respect to homeownership.
