Estimates from the 2006 American Community Survey show home ownership rates for various racial and ethnic groups in Iowa. The table below measures the percentage of households living in owner‐ occupied housing units by the race or ethnicity of the householder. Iowa’s Black population had a home ownership that was nearly half as low as that for Iowa’s white, non‐Hispanic population. Asian and Hispanic rates were also substantially lower.
