Data Summary

🌎 From coast to coast, it's fascinating to see how home ownership varies across the U.S. While some states like West Virginia and Mississippi have a high percentage of home-owning residents, others like California and the District of Columbia see a larger number of renters. This could be due to a variety of factors such as cost of living, job opportunities, and lifestyle preferences. So whether you're a homeowner in the heartland, or a renter in the city, there's a place for everyone in this diverse nation. 🏠🌆
