blk_rule3.gif (96 bytes)

A housing unit may be a house, an apartment, a mobile home, a group of rooms, or a single room that is occupied (or, if vacant, is intended for occupancy) as separate living quarters.  Separate living quarters are those in which the occupants live separately from any other individuals in the building and that have direct access from outside the building or through a common hall.  For vacant units, the criteria of separateness and direct access are applied to the intended occupants whenever possible.  If that information cannot be obtained, the criteria are applied to the previous occupants.

Occupied housing unit:

A housing unit is occupied if it is the usual place of residence of the person or group of people living in it at the time of enumeration or if the occupants are only temporarily absent; that is, away on vacation or business.  The occupants may be a single family, one person living alone, two or more families living together, or any other group of related or unrelated people who share living quarters.
Vacant housing unit:
A housing unit is vacant if no one is living in it at the time of enumeration, unless its occupants are only temporarily absent.  Units temporarily occupied at the time of enumeration entirely by people who have a usual residence elsewhere are classified as vacant.

Tenure was asked for all occupied housing units.  All occupied housing units are classified as either owner-occupied or renter-occupied.

The data on year structure built were obtained from answers to the long-form questionnaire, which was asked on a sample basis at both occupied and vacant housing units.  Year structure built refers to when the building was first constructed, not when it was remodeled, added to, or converted.  For housing units under construction that met the housing unit definition — that is, all exterior windows, doors, and final usable floors were in place — the category ‘‘1999 or 2000 ’’was used for tabulations.  For mobile homes, houseboats, RVs, etc, the manufacturer’s model year was assumed to be the year built.  The data relate to the number of units built during the specified periods that were still in existence at the time of enumeration.
