In a recent study, NAHB examines eight key housing statistics from the 2012 American Community Survey (ACS). This post takes a closer look at one of those statistics; the share of homeowners living in single-family detached housing.

The share of homeowners living in single-family detached housing is calculated by taking the total number of single-family detached units divided by the total number of owner-occupied units. The figure gives a snapshot of the housing stock for a specified geography.

The metropolitan area with the highest share of homeowners living in single-family detached housing is Wausau, WI with 96.2 percent. The national share of homeowners living in single-family detached housing is 82.3 percent.

With the exception of Modesto, CA, all of the metropolitan areas in the top ten are located in the Midwest. All metropolitan areas in the top ten have median home values below the national figure. The median value of owner-occupied housing units for the entire United States in 2012 was $171,900.

Four of the ten areas with the lowest share of homeowners living in single-family detached housing are located in Florida. In general, metropolitan areas with low shares of homeowners living in single-family detached housing are also densely populated.

The metropolitan area with the lowest share of homeowners living in single-family detached housing is the New York-White Plains-Wayne (New York) metro division. The New York metro division is the most populous at nearly 12 million.
