New Mexico Counties, Housing Occupancy Status (2010)

Metadata Updated: December 2, 2020

The once-a-decade decennial census was conducted in April 2010 by the U.S. Census Bureau. This count of every resident in the United States was mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution and all households in the U.S. and individuals living in group quarters were required by law to respond to the 2010 Census questionnaire. The data collected by the decennial census determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities. The questionnaire consisted of a limited number of questions but allowed for the collection of information on the number of people in the household and their relationship to the householder, an individual's age, sex, race and Hispanic ethnicity, the number of housing units and whether those units are owner- or renter-occupied, or vacant. Results for sub-state geographic areas in New Mexico were released in a series of data products. These data come from the Demographic Profile 1 (DP-1) Summary File. The geographic coverage for DP-1 SF includes the state, counties, places (both incorporated and unincorporated communities), tribal lands, school districts, census tracts, and other areas. More detailed population and housing characteristics will be released in the summer of 2011 in the Summary File 1 data product. The data in these particular RGIS Clearinghouse tables are for New Mexico and all counties. There are two data tables. One provides total counts of housing units, ocupied housing units and vacant housing units, while the other provides counts of total housing uings along with proportions of occupied and vacant housing units. These files, along with file-specific descriptions (in Word and text formats) are available in a single zip file.
