I am trying to estimate vacancy rates for large rental buildings (specifically, rental units in buildings with 5+ units). Does the variable “vacancy status by units in structure” or its components exist in a way that can be made public for block-group or tract? I see there is “Tenure by Units in Structure” and “Vacancy Status”, but there is no cross between them.
Alternatively, could this be calculated using the ACS at a higher geography (and then I could apply this ratio to the smaller geography)? For example, if X percent of for rent buildings are “large” in county C, then I could apply X at the block-group / tract level.
Thank you for your time,
