The Bubble And The Quality Of Life

Somebody woke up to the negative aspects of the housing bubble and did a poll on the subject. They were surprised at the outcome. "Nearly half (48 percent) of those surveyed who don't own a home said the cost of housing has made them consider moving somewhere else, while 27 percent of homeowners said they've considered moving elsewhere."

This statement shows the issue hasn't dawned on the quality of life "experts" before. "The question of whether people had considered moving because of housing costs was not asked in three previous versions of CSUS's Annual Survey of Public Opinion and Life Quality in the Sacramento Region."

Is this a typo or did they ask them the same question but just using different english?

Renters and homeowners were asked the same question. Thus the two different numbers.

Best line of the day. I'm biased. Just last night I watched A Day At The Races; love the MB.
