  • Children of homeowners tend to stay in school and have lower drop-out rates.
  • Daughters of homeowners have a lower incidence of teen pregnancy.
  • Homeowners may pass along life management skills like financial planning and responsibility.
  • Neighborhood stability is greater in neighborhoods with more homeowners.
  • Children of homeowners are more likely to achieve higher levels of education and go on to earn higher levels of income.
