ten percent of homeowners are still underwater
According to The Wall Street Journal's "Welcome to Rockford, Ill., the Underwater Mortgage Capital of America" report, 5.3 million mortgage holders remain underwater nationwide.

5.3 million accounts for 10.6 percent of all homeowners, but this is still a big improvement from early 2011, when a third of all mortgage holders owed more on their home than its current worth.
