Component ID: #ti3267714

More housing observations:

The Census Bureau’s housing data present a comprehensive picture of housing in America. You will find a wide range of data on the size, age and type of American homes; home values, rents and mortgages, the housing and construction industry, and more.

We measure the housing and construction industry, track homeownership rates, and produce statistics on both the physical and financial characteristics of our homes. Together, these statistics present a comprehensive picture of housing in America, allowing data-driven decision-making at all levels of government.

The key housing information we release is critical to measuring our national economy. The housing industry represents more than a quarter of our nation’s total investment dollars and about 5 percent of our total economy.

Multiple surveys collect housing information, including the American Housing Survey, the American Community Survey, the Decennial Census of Population and Housing, the Current Population Survey/Housing Vacancy and Homeownership Survey, the New York City Housing and Vacancy Survey, Survey of Market Absorption of New Multifamily Units, the Rental Housing Finance Survey, the Building Permits Survey, and the Survey of Construction. Each survey addresses different data needs and produces statistics at different levels of geography.

All characteristics data, including estimates for new multifamily housing, are on our Characteristics of New Housing page.
