Definition: Estimated percentage of children ages 0-17 living in households with more than one person per room of the home (e.g., in 2016, 28.4% of California children lived in crowded households).
Data Source: Population Reference Bureau, analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey microdata files (Dec. 2017).
Footnote: The number of persons per room is calculated by dividing the number of occupants by the number of rooms (living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, finished recreation rooms, enclosed porches, and lodger's rooms) in the housing unit. Data are displayed for geographies with at least 65,000 people based on 2016 population estimates. These estimates are based on a survey of the population and are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. The notation S refers to estimates that have been suppressed because the margin of error was greater than 5 percentage points. N/A means that data are not available.
