How Asian American Women Are Making Homeownership Gains

A report from the Urban Institute found that the proportion of female-headed households increased in the US across all racial and ethnic groups over the past 30 years, likely because of higher household incomes and the increase in married women as household heads. Asian American women have made significant gains in homeownership and have the smallest homeownership gender gap of all women, at 2 percent. However, the study’s authors are cautious about how the pandemic has affected these gains. “COVID-19 has created a disproportionate harm on females, especially single females with children who are working in lower-income industries,” said Jung Choi, a senior research associate at the Urban Institute.
