dc.description.abstractDo income disparities between men and women translate into longer term wealth disparities?We use the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) to investigate gender andrace disparities in home ownership, value, and equity. These investigations reveal that thegap in housing outcomes is much more pronounced for the probability of home ownershipthan for home value or home equity. Once households have entered the housing market,differences across gender, race and family type are much smaller and sometimes turn infavor of households that are usually considered to be disadvantaged. Family type isassociated with differences that are larger than those based solely on gender and are aslarge as those associated solely with race. The predicted probability of home ownershipranges from 0.83 for male householders in married couple households to 0.49 for malehouseholders in non-family households. African Americans are consistently predicted to havelower home value, but less consistently predicted to have less equity than whites. We findthat race gaps in homeownership, typically attributed to differences in family type (such asprevalence of female headed households in the African American population), aresignificantly and sizably present within gendered family types.en_US
