Barbara J. Lipman is the research director for the Center for Housing Policy. Despite national homeownership rates at or near all-time highs in recent years, the rate for working families with children was higher back in 1978 than in 2003. This report details this disturbing trend and also tracks how the homeownership gap between white and minority working families with children has widened over the past 25 years.
