  • Multi-unit operators and full-time hosts make up 66 percent of Airbnb's revenue.
  • New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Miami have the largest share of full-time operators.
  • Mega-operators, or those operating three or more units, was the largest uptick from October 2014 to September 2015.

Shared housing and short-term rentals are no new phenomenon, but their increased presence in major cities around the world has caused a lot of speculation over the localized impact on the housing market and home prices.
