The New York City Housing and Vacancy Survey (HVS) is the most comprehensive and reliable housing market survey conducted in any city in the United States. Housing New York City 2011, by Dr. Moon Wha Lee, provides not only a critical snapshot of New York City's housing market in 2011, but also, with data from HVS surveys since 1965, valuable insights into trends and patterns in the City's housing market over the last four decades.
This comprehensive Report includes 300 tables, 86 figures and 24 maps. It analyzes extensively the City's residential population and households, race/ethnicity, household composition and types, crowding and doubling-up, immigration, incomes and the labor market, education, homeownership, vacancies and vacancy rates, rent levels, affordability, and the condition of housing and neighborhoods, including trends for the City and the 5 boroughs. Maps show local concentrations of population and housing characteristics by census tract. Detailed data are provided for each of 55 areas similar to Community Districts in 30 sub-borough tables.
Useful to policy analysts, planners, scholars and researchers, real estate analysts, developers, service providers in private and non-profit organizations, government agencies and community groups. This CD includes instant links to every chapter, section, table, figure, map and detailed technical documents on the content and procedures of the HVS.
