Draft Census 2010 Oregon HO Rate Data by Race, Ethnicity Does NOT Look Good.

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:
  1. An African American home ownership rate of 32.9%
  2. A Hispanic home ownership rate of 40.2%. 
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
