ZIP Code Rental Market Characteristics & Pattern Analysis
The graphic shown below illustrates use of the U.S. national scale Census 2010 ZIP Code Tabulation Area shapefile with integrated Census 2010 demographic profile subject matter items (details about this shapefile/data) to view/analyze rental vacancy rate patterns. The CommunityViewer GIS software (http://proximityone.com/cv.htm) is used to display a thematic map showing patterns of rental vacancy rates by 5-digit ZIP Code. The identify tool (see pointer) is used to select and display a mini-profile showing characteristics of this ZIP code area.
The rental vacancy rate is the proportion of the rental inventory that is vacant "for rent." It is computed by dividing the number of vacant units "for rent" by the sum of the renter-occupied units, vacant units that are "for rent," and vacant units that have been rented but not yet occupied, and then multiplying by 100.
