Volume VI presents cross-tabulations of housing and household characteristics for rural housing units in the United States and its 121 economic subregions. Generally, the data are presented separately for nonfarm and farm housing units, and for owner-occupied and renter-occupied units. For vacant units, selected characteristics for rural-nonfarm units are presented separately for units available for sale and for those available for rent.

A standard set of tables for occupied units is presented for each economic subregion and for the United States. In addition, cross-tabulations for housing units with nonwhite household heads are presented for subregions having 10,000 or more such units. The vacancy data for all subregions and the United States are presented in one table.

The purpose of this volume is to provide cross-tabulations of housing and household characteristics for analytical uses. The principal subjects which are cross-tabulated by various characteristics are: rooms, condition and plumbing facilities, income, and year structure built. Other subjects involved in the cross-tabulations include: persons, persons per room, household composition, year moved into unit, bedrooms, heating equipment, heating fuel, cooking fuel, source of water, sewage disposal, and the number of units having selected equipment items. Equipment items included are: radio sets, television sets, telephone available, automobiles available, air conditioning, home food freezer, clothes washing machine, and clothes dryer. The subjects presented for vacant units are vacancy status, plumbing facilities, duration of vacancy, and median price or rent asked.

A series of standard tables is presented for the United States and each economic subregion. Each table, except Table 7, shows separate statistics for rural-nonfarm and rural-farm units.
