Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s most recent American Community Survey, which tracks median housing costs from 2013 to 2017, a CNBC article says homeowners spend more money per month than renters in every single state across the U.S.  It also breaks down the monthly difference in renting versus owning per state.  In New Jersey, the difference is greatest at $1,100, while in Arkansas, it’s just $300, the article states.
