HOME OWNERSHIP SEEN DECLINING

Americans are less likely to own a home today than they were a decade ago, the Census Bureau reported.

Nationally, 63.9 percent of households owned their homes in 1989, down from 65.6 percent in 1980, according to the report, "Homeownership Trends in the 1980s."

The Northeast, a region of stable population, was the only region to show an increase in home ownership in the '80s, rising from 60.8 percent to 62 percent of households.
