Homeownership rates for blacks decline in three quarters of large metros: Latino and Asian shares of homeowners rise sharply

The housing crisis has had a particularly severe effect on black households, with black homeownership rates in three quarters of the 100 largest metro areas dropping between 2000 and 2010, according to the new diversitydata.org issue brief, "The Changing Face of Homeowners in Large Metro Areas."  Latino rates have also fallen nationally since 2007, but, in a majority of large metros, Latino gains made in the first part of the last decade have not been completely erased.  Asian homeownership rates have experienced the strongest growth.  At the same time, ongoing demographic changes mean that minorities, particularly Latinos and Asians, now make up larger shares of homeowners in large metros than they did a decade ago.
