STATES WITH THE HIGHEST (AND LOWEST) PERCENTAGES OF HOUSEHOLDS HAVING 3 OR MORE BEDROOMS

Except for Utah (with its large families), the states with the most bedrooms in their households are in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic (which are about average for family size). In these states, the total number of rooms tends to be higher than elsewhere. Highly urbanized states (with more apartments, condos and small houses) and Western states generally rank lowest. The national average is 57.1 percent (based on the 2000 U.S. Census).
