The American Community Survey (ACS), conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, publishes detailed estimates about owner-occupied housing throughout the United States each year, including data .

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. The data in this story only considers owner-occupied housing units.

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.
