This indicator provides the share of occupied housing units that are crowded in the neighborhood where the average homeowner or renter of different racial/ethnic groups lives. For instance, if the value is 10% for Hispanic renters, this statistic is interpreted as "The average Hispanic renter household in this metro area lives in a neighborhood where 10% of occupied housing units are crowded."
Crowding defined as more than one person per room. Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 population of the specified racial/ethnic group.
