- Total housing units

The data can be downloaded from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Factfinder website.
New York Data
The Program on Applied Demographics (PAD) at Cornell University has created a series of maps showing almost all the indicators available in the Demographic Profile dataset for New York. Maps are organized in three groupings:
- economic region,
- county/subcounty and
- major cities.
The maps added in July 2011 focused on housing occupancy and tenure, household type (family, nonfamily) and the relationship (in household, in group quarters) but also include maps of population size and density. More population variables will be added.
