Why We Ask Questions About...
Units in Structure, Rooms, Bedrooms

Your privacy concerns

We use your confidential survey answers to create statistics like those in the results below and in the full tables that contain all the data—no one is able to figure out your survey answers from the statistics we produce. The Census Bureau is legally bound to strict confidentiality requirements. Individual records are not shared with anyone, including federal agencies and law enforcement entities. By law, the Census Bureau cannot share respondents' answers with anyone—not the IRS, not the FBI, not the CIA, and not with any other government agency.

Questions as they appear on the form

We ask two questions about the units in the structure, number of rooms, and number of bedrooms to produce statistics about housing types and housing density.

Results from these questions

We compile the results from these questions to provide communities with important statistics for infrastructure development and emergency planning. You can see some of these published statistics here for the nation, states, and your community.
