In regards to the relationship between homeowners and non-homeowners, it used to be thought that it was related to whether or not someone had student debt. It’s now coming to light that it’s not student debt that’s the issue, but it’s whether or not someone attended college.
Graphs that showed comparisons of student debt and home ownership seemed fairly obviously related, but a deeper look at the graphs brings to attention the fact that whether or not homeowners are college-educated is not taken into account at all. When all three factors are looked at, it’s obvious that the percentage of homeownership in people without a college education is far lower.
