Duration and tenure of residence are important indicators of stability/change in the housing market and are therefore of interest to policy makers and businesses. Our paper updates the Census Bureau's existing reports on these topics, which we published from the 1993 and 1996 panels of the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). Our new report will use data from both the 2004 and 2008 SIPP panels to tabulate the duration and tenure of residence data for each year by demographic characteristics of residents at the time the survey was conducted. These characteristics include race/ethnicity, citizenship, age, martial status, parenthood, income, education, current residence (metropolitan/non-metropolitan), and region. We conclude by comparing the duration and tenure patterns for each demographic characteristic from 2004 to those of 2008 to identify changes.
