Statistical Brief: Condominiums

Report Number SB/94-11

On the 1990 census “long form,” sent to 1 in every 6 housing units, we asked households whether their houses or apartments were part of a condominium. A condominium is a form of homeownership in which the apartments in a building or houses in a development are individually owned, but common areas, such as lobbies or halls, are jointly owned. The owner may not actually live in the unit; in that case, the unit would be either renter-occupied or vacant. Cooperatives, another type of ownership found primarily in the Northeast, were not included in the count of condominiums. This Brief examines the characteristics of condos and their occupants in 1990 and compares this information with similar data collected in the 1980 census.
