The rental vacancy rate is an economic indicator which measures the percentage of rental homes that are vacant.

Residential vacancies[edit]

In the United States the Census Bureau keeps track of vacancy rates.[1] In Canada Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation measures vacancy rates of 25 metropolitan areas and for the 75 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) across the country [2] and publishes the findings semi-annually in June and December.[3]

Commercial vacancies[edit]

According to the Seattle Times office space is "tight" in Seattle and Bellevue.[4]
