Want to know if your house has more bathrooms or bedrooms than most homes in America? How about how many homes have a smoker under their roof? Or how many have swimming pools?
All the details on the nation's housing are for the first time available on the Census Bureau's American FactFinder site. The 2011 American Housing Survey by the Census and the Department of Housing and Urban Development now includes housing safety features and access to disabilities.
The latest survey found that 64% of residences have no steps between rooms, 48% have entry-level bathrooms and only 2% have grab bars or handrails (excluding stair areas). Only 1% have ramps and 8% have built-in shower seats.
-- Almost 20% of people who recently moved identified "convenience to job" as the most important factor in choosing a neighborhood.
-- Most homes (64%) have three or more bedrooms, but three-fourths of new homes have three or more.
-- About half have two or more bathrooms.
-- 12% have a smoker in the house.
-- 16% have a pool
-- The most common Energy Star-rated appliances are refrigerators (35%), washing machines (30%) and dishwashers (22%).
-- Housing costs an average $927 a month, or 24% of household incomes. For those living in new homes, it's higher: $1,340 a month.
-- Renters spend less than homeowners but more of their income goes to cover housing: $845 a month or 31% of income vs. $1,008 or 20% for owners.
