2023 Housing Unit Survey

Each year Finance must collect housing unit change data from every city and county in California. These data form the basis for the housing estimates included in the Housing Unit Method used by Finance to produce annual population estimates for cities and counties. Finance is mandated to produce these population estimates by the Gann Initiative, passed in 1979 that is now part of the State constitution – Article XIIIB, and is chaptered in Section 2228 of the Revenue and Taxation code.

Note: This survey was delivered to specific local government contacts.

The 2023 HUS deadline is January 31, 2023. For more information, call (916) 323-4086 and ask for Doug Kuczynski or John Boyne.
