Sign "O" the Times

Sorry, kids:

The homeownership rate for Americans under 35 years of age peaked in 2004 and has been trending generally (but not persistently) downward since then, according to data released this week by the Census Bureau.

In the second quarter of 2014, the rate of homeownership among householders who are under 35 dropped to the lowest number ever reported since the Census Bureau first started recording quarterly homeownership rates 21 years ago.


On the bright side, fewer middle-aged couples than ever are suffering from empty nest syndrome.
