A recent research study from Fannie Mae’s Economic & Strategic Research Group investigates the attitudes toward homeownership and getting a mortgage, as well as expectations for future homeownership, among the U.S. Hispanic population — the country’s fastest growing population, which is projected to account for most of U.S. population growth through 2060.
Data from Fannie Mae’s National Housing Survey highlight the attitudes among the Hispanic population to offer a better understanding of the potential impact of this fast-growing population on future homeownership demand.
Fannie Mae's Topic Analysis Reports provide deeper insights into one or more housing issues based on the compilation of three monthly National Housing Survey samples. The National Housing Survey polls more than 1,000 homeowners and renters each month to assess their attitudes toward owning and renting a home, the current state of their household finances, views on the U.S. housing finance system, and overall confidence in the economy. The three monthly survey studies that make up any given Topic Analysis Report are identical in wording and placement of questions.
On this webpage you will find a link to an FM Commentary from Sarah Shahdad, Economic & Strategic Research Analyst, that provides key insights from the study results, as well as a survey results deck, a data summary of responses to questions asked, technical notes providing in-depth information about the survey methodology, the questionnaire used for the survey, and a comparative assessment of the Fannie Mae National Housing Survey and other consumer surveys.
