September 30, 2010 | Number of The Day

There are 3.5 million housing units in NJ, 10 percent of which are vacant, according to the newly released American Community Survey conducted each year by the U.S. Census Bureau. We truly are a suburban state: 63 percent of housing structures were single-family homes; 36 percent, multi-unit structures; and 1 percent, mobile homes. Eighteen percent of all housing structures were built since 1990. The survey also showed that more than half of all households had at least two vehicles, 37 percent had two vehicles and 17 percent had three or more.
