New York City’s Upper East Side: America’s Neighborhood with the Largest Average Household Size

MONDAY, MAY 29, 2023

Perhaps not surprisingly, a Census tract in New York City has the highest average household size of any neighborhood in the country for owner-occupied housing, according to a TractIQ analysis of 2017-21 American Community Survey data. A Census tract on the Upper East Side of Manhattan has an average of 34.5 people per household, followed by a tract in Los Angeles County, Calif. (21.4), and Clayton County, Ga. (18.9).

Among renter-occupied households, the largest average size is found in Ottawa County, Mich. (24 people per household), followed by neighborhoods in Marion County, Ohio (18); Queens County, N.Y. (15.33); McIntosh County, Ga. (12.8); and Sussex County, Del. (12.7).
