Apartments Versus Schools Redux

One of the enduring obstacles thrown at apartment developers in many local jurisdictions is this assumption: A new apartment property will bring in too many children and overburden the local school district.

NMHC’s research team once again countered this assumption with new data analysis this spring, finding that the average number of children in apartments is less than the average for single-family dwellings (both owned and rented). And the difference is even greater for recently built homes.

If the focus is narrowed to just school-age children, apartments contribute even less to demand for schooling. In fact, the data show that 100 new apartment homes will have the same number of schoolchildren on average as just 35 new, single-family owner-occupied houses.
