The US Population hit 200 million in 1967.
Hereâ€™s a quick look at how the U.S. has changed in 39 years, in terms of new home prices, population density, and household growth.
U.S. Households (millions) >> 59 >> 113
Price of a new home (dollars) >> $24,600 >> $290,600
Home ownership rate >> 63.6 >> 68.9
People per square mile >> 57 >> 84
One-person households >> 15.5% >> 26.6%
Five-person households >> 10.6% >> 6.3%
Whoa! My parents had five children. I’m guessing we were in the company of a very low number of households.
