Census 2010 Housing Vacancy Data

by Bill McBride on 3/19/2011 04:55:00 PM

The Census Buraeu has released data for 42 states so far. These states account for about 83% of the U.S. housing stock based on the 2000 and 1990 Census data. All of the data will be released by April 1st.

Here is a table of the data released so far - total housing units, Occupied and Vacant - for each state, plus the vacancy rate for 2010, 2000 and 1990. The data is sortable by column.

We can use this data to estimate the number of excess vacant housing units as of April 1, 2010 by comparing to earlier vacancy rates. I'll be posting some analysis soon (here is a spreadsheet of the 2010, 2000 and 1990 data too).
