Lake County Housing Unit Occupancy Statistics
The American Community Survey, conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, publishes detailed estimates about housing each year. Unlike the Census—which is an exact count of people and households every ten years—ACS statistics are estimated based on a representative survey sample.
For locations with populations under 60,000, the ACS is only available in 5-year estimates, rather than single-year periods. The 5-year estimates provide greater geographical granularity but a less granular time period. To view data for different 5-year periods, use the time-slider beneath the charts.
