  • Number of Occupied Housing Units: Number of Occupied Housing Units sourced to Clark County Comprehensive Planning. Comprehensive Planning collaborates with other local agencies to prepare annual housing unit estimates for Clark County and the Cities.
  • Persons per Household: Persons per Household sourced to Clark County Comprehensive Planning and Applied Analysis Calculation. Applied Analysis used the Comprehensive Planning estimate of population for each area, and divided it by the corresponding estimate for the number of occupied housing units in that area.
  • Number of Vacant Housing Units: Number of Vacant Housing Units sourced to Clark County Comprehensive Planning. Comprehensive Planning collaborates with other local agencies to prepare annual housing unit estimates for Clark County and the Cities.
  • Housing Vacancy Rate: Housing Vacancy Rate sourced to Clark County Comprehensive Planning and Applied Analysis Calculation. Applied Analysis used the Comprehensive Planning estimate of vacant housing units for each area, and divided it by the corresponding estimate for the number of housing units (the sum of occupied and vacant) in that area.
  • Jobs Per Household: Jobs Per Household sourced to Clark County Comprehensive Planning, The US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Local Area Unemployment Statistics and Applied Analysis Calculation. Applied Analysis used the BLS estimate of employment for each area, and divided it by the corresponding estimate for the Comprehensive Planning estimate of vacant housing units for that area.
