What does this measure?

Homeowners by Age Range, Move In Date, Education Level, and Race/Ethnicity as of 2018, by ZIP code.

Why is this important?

The home ownership market is an important way to gauge the momentum of a place, and know where demographics are concentrated. Tenure in one place, regardless of home ownership or renting, is an important corollary to quality of life. A higher rate of rentals over homeownership can also indicate the momentum of a neighborhood, or institution in the area.
