Less U.S. Singles Own Their Own Home
Homeowners in the U.S.
While homeownership rates have decreased across all types of households (e.g. married couple and families nearly 5 percent) after the burst of the subprime mortgage bubble in the U.S., they have especially done so among singles. Accordingly, rates fell by almost 8 percent for male and even 10 percent for female singles.
