Purple Vetch Properties strives to bring to life for you the world of multifamily properties in an assortment of ways. We think that graphs are a powerful visual tool to do just that. Therefore, we’ve chosen to create from raw data some graphical representations of various characteristics of apartment buildings and their residents.
Three premier sources for data that we present are:
The Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS), conducted every four years since 1978 by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), a statistical and analytical agency within the U.S. Department of Energy
The Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS), a national sample survey also through the U.S. Department of Energy that collects information on the stock of U.S. commercial buildings, including all buildings in which at least half of the floorspace is used for a purpose that is not residential, industrial, or agricultural. The CBECS is also conducted every four years, and was first conducted in 1979 with the most recent valid survey conducted in 2003.
The American Housing Survey (AHS, formerly Annual Housing Survey) conducted regularly since 1973 by the U.S. Census Bureau for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
However, PVP will use data from other sources as well, as we see fit, in order to help visually portray demographics and characteristics of multifamily properties.
We suggest you return to this web page regularly since, from time to time, as new survey data becomes available, we will refresh the page and provide you with the most up to date graphical representations of the multifamily industry that we can find. Also, do visit our blog, where we will have on-going sharing and discussions in real time about evolving trends in the housing industry ~ such as the lowest homeownership levels (approximately 67%) in over a decade near the end of 2010.
