"A record-breaking 68.3 percent of Americans achieved one of the key elements of the American Dream in 2003—owning their own home. At the same time, housing is the greatest expense for most Americans, making homeowners the primary customers of most businesses.

Americans and Their Homes: Demographics of Homeownership, the first edition of which was published in 1998, is back in an expanded second edition to give you a detailed look at the demographics of who owns their home and what those homes are like.

You will discover who homeowners are by such useful demographic characteristics as age, income, household type, race, Hispanic origin, and geographical residence.

You will also learn about their homesheating, cooling, kitchen and laundry equipment, purchase price and value, housing costs, and much, much more

Its eight chapters examine: trends in homeownership, homeowners and their homes, homeowners by region, owners of new homes, owners of mobile homes (a new chapter), owners of high-value homes, homeowners who recently moved, and spendiung on homes."
