I have taken a first look at the Census 2010 homeownership data for Oregon and it does not look good.
With caveat that this is a DRAFT, my quick state level analysis is HERE. Draft indicates:
- An African American home ownership rate of 32.9%
- A Hispanic home ownership rate of 40.2%.
- I don't have data readily available, but both African American and Hispanic home ownership rates appear to be significant declines from Oregon 2000 rates.
- To reach the White, non Hispanic home ownership rate the Oregon African American home ownership rate would have to increase by 98.1%, and the Hispanic Home ownership rate would have to increase by 62%. [This is shown as "Gap"[s] in the bottom rows of the table].
If you see any errors, please send me an email or add a comment below
Time permitting I will review this draft, make any corrections, and later publish similar data for all Oregon counties, places, and census tracts.
