American Housing Month: June 2022

Press Release Number CB22-SFS.76

National Homeownership Month: June 2022


From Census.gov > Topics > Housing > About:

The Census Bureau’s housing data present a comprehensive picture of housing in America. You will find a wide range of data on the size, age and type of American homes; and home values, rents and mortgages, the housing and construction industry, and more.

We measure the housing and construction industry, track homeownership rates and produce statistics on both the physical and financial characteristics of our homes. Together, these statistics present a comprehensive picture of housing in America, allowing data-driven decision-making at all levels of government.

The key housing information we release is critical to measuring our national economy. The housing industry represents more than a quarter of our nation’s total investment dollars and about 5 percent of our total economy.
