A third of non-Western second generation immigrants aged 30 own their residences, reports Statistics Denmark. The same goes for 40% of non-Western second generation immigrants aged 35.
Descendants of immigrants are getting into the ownership market much more than their parents. 21-29% of non-Western immigrants live in their own residence. Among those over 50 the percentage is highest at 29%.

Immigrants and their descendants are less likely to buy a residence than somebody of Danish origin.
Half of Danish 30 year old live in their own residence, as does a majority (61%) of all people between 25 and 60. That's 64% among Danes, 42% for Western immigrants and 26% for non-Western immigrants.
48% of descendants of Western immigrants live in their own residence, compared to 33% of non-Western descendants. Statistics Denmark concludes that's because the descendants of non-Western immigrants are very young.
The percent of residence owners generally increases with age, until people are in their 60s. 33% of those aged 25-29, 56% of people in their thirties 30-39, 65% of people in their forties, and the greatest share of 68% of those in their fifties, live in their own residence.
