Historical Background

Since 1940, the United States Census Bureau has conducted a decennial housing census, surveying all housing units throughout the country on a variety of subjects. This week, we look at just two of these metrics - Median Home Value and Home Ownership Rates, both by state.

We're just scraping the surface of what the Census Bureau and the Housing Census have to offer, and we're bound to revisit both in the near future. This is a small and simple dataset this week, that promises to offer plenty of insight. What can you find in the data?

Data Source
