Housing (Census)

Geocodio enables you to match addresses or coordinates to data from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey on housing statistics. You can upload a spreadsheet, or use our API.

Note: this data is for the Census Block Group. It is not for individual households. In order to receive accurate data, you must supply a street address, intersection, or coordinates.

This data is provided at the Census Block Group level and is available from the 2018 five-year American Community Survey, last published in 2019. (The 1-year American Community Surveys do not have granularity at this level.)

You can download an example spreadsheet of addresses with Census housing data added here.

We provide the data exactly as it is packaged by the Census Bureau in the breakouts it gives. The only change we have made is to add a "percentage" calculation to aid ease of use.

For each data point, we return the value, margin of error, and percentage.

Data points returned are:

  • Occupancy status (Table #B25002)

    • occupied
    • vacant
  • Ownership of occupied units (Table #B25003)

    • owner-occupied
    • renter-occupied
  • Units in structure (Table #B25024)

    • 1, detached unit; 1, attached unit; 2 units; 3 or 4 units; 5 to 9 units; 10 to 19 units; 20 to 49 units; 50 or more units; mobile home units; boat, RV, van, etc. units
