Housing Split

Housing Split is the amount of single-family housing versus multi-family housing. US Census Bureau data 1-year estimates were used, grouping multi-family and single family homes built. Attached multi-family is one or more attached homes, while other includes mobile homes, boats, RVs, etc. As the chart reveals, single family and multi-family home splits have remained steady. Detached single family homes have averaged around 75%, with multi-family about 25% in recent years. Refer to the graph for exact numbers each housing type.
