About the Data
The data used in this dashboard is provided by the State of California Finance Department report titled 'E-5 Population and Housing Estimates for Cities, Counties, and the State, 2011-2018 with 2010 Census Benchmark'. This report provides the revised population and housing estimates for January 1, 2011-2017 and provisional population and housing estimates for January 1, 2018 for the state, counties, and cities. The data is extracted and uploaded in Socrata manually on a yearly basis.
Living in well-kept, affordable, and sensibly located housing is one of the most important determinants of well–being for every Corona citizen. Housing affects our lives in many notable ways, including determining our access to work, education, recreation, and shopping. The cost and availability of housing also impacts other key aspects of the City's economy, such as the ability for employers to successfully retain qualified workers and influencing business decisions about whether to locate, expand, or remain in Corona.
The number of available housing units, defined as unoccupied dwellings within Corona, is being measured yearly. The data indicates that the availability of homes continues to slowly decline as time progresses.
Hunting for Homes
The City of Corona is currently facing a housing shortage due to low vacancy rates currently being experienced across the city.
Due to a lack of supply, prospective homeowners have a difficult time finding available homes at an affordable price.
The number of housing units available within Corona is one of many important indicators because it allows officials to research and determine whether the construction of new housing units for low-moderate income homes is needed.
