We are not in a building boom here in Washtenaw County.

chart of population, population change, number of housing units, annual growth in housing units, and percentage of new housing units that are single-family housing

Notes on sources:

  • population figures 2009-2017 are ACS 5-year estimates (B01003, “total population”)
  • # housing units 2009-2017 are ACS 5-year estimates (B25001)
  • # new housing units (all years) are Census Building Permits Survey
  • population figures 2007-2008 are ACS 3-year estimates (B01003, “total population”)
  • population figures 2005-2006 are ACS (B01003, “total population”)
  • # housing units 2007-2008 are ACS 3-year estimates (B25001)
  • # housing units for 2008 and 2009 had markedly higher margins of error than other years, likely a result of the 2008 financial crisis
  • # housing units 2005-2006 are ACS (B25001)
