Since the recent economic recession, more people are renting homes and less people are buying them. Certain people have been more affected by this shift than others. This visualization shows how the age of the person paying for the housing seems to influence whether they own or rent the home. The visualization also lets you look back to 2005 to see how the proportions have changed since then.
Mobile Users: If you are having issues using the interactive version of this visualization, you can find a static version of it here.
To create this data visualization I gathered data from the American Community Survey on American Fact Finder. I used Table B25007 and the data from 2005 to 2015. I then manipulated the data in excel and used Tableau to visualize the data.
