Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
In housing assistance a vacancy episode occurs when a dwelling is untenanted, but is available to be tenanted. The number of days in each vacancy episode is calculated by subtracting the date the dwelling was last occupied from the date the dwelling was first vacated. The vacancy start date is generally the day after the previous household has ended their tenancy, i.e. equal to Dwelling—vacancy start date, DDMMYYYY on the Household (housing assistance) cluster. The vacancy end date is the day that the next household starts their tenancy in the dwelling, i.e. equal to Dwelling—vacancy end date, DDMMYYYY of the previous household.
