VACANT DWELLING UNITS IN THE UNITED STATES:

THIRD QUARTER 1955

(This is the second in a series of reports on vacant dwelling units in the United States. The first report

covered the second quarter 1955 and provided a detailed analysis of the results. Reports will be issued
quarterly in Series H-11)

[ocr errors]

The available vacancy rate for the United States for the third quarter 1955 at 2.3 percent showed no change from the rate for the second quarter, according to the results of sample surveys conducted by the Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce. The "for rent" portion was 1.8 percent of all dwelling units, and the "for sale" portion was 0.5 percent. An available vacant dwelling unit is a unit which 18 intended for year-round occupancy , is not dilapidated, and is offered for rent or sale.

By geographic region, the available vacanoy rates for the third quarter varied considerably~from 1,4 percent in the Northeast to 4,0 percent in the West (table 1). To some extent, these rates are associated with the mobility of the population in recent years. The population of the Test was most mobile and that of the Northeast was the least.

Por other types of vacant units--those already rented old, held off the mai t, dilapidated--the rates in 1955 for the United States as a whole did not differ substantially from the rates in 1950 (table A).

The 1955 third quarter statistics are averages for the three months, July, August, and September On the whole, they reflect very little change in the housing vacancy ratios since the second quarter 1955. (See Series H-lll, No. 1.) Care should be used in making comparisons for the two quarters since the results for both reports

based on sample surveys and small differences may not be significant.

Rentals for three-tenths of the nonfarm vacancies included amounts for all utilities--heat, water, light, and cooking fuel. The practice of including all utilities in the rent common inside standard metropolitan areas than outside these areas.

Approximately 0.5 percent of the total dwelling units were vacant units which had been rented or sold but not yet ocoupied (and were for year-round use and not dilapidated). The count of units in this group is often included in the measure of the potential supply of available housing because, as families move into them,

the units they vacate may become available for ocoupancy. The proportion of suoh units varied only slightly from one region to another.
