Guide for use:

In housing collections the vacancy start and end dates are used to measure the average time taken for tenantable vacant stock to be occupied by a tenant. The vacancy end date is the day that the next household starts their tenancy in the dwelling (i.e. equal to dt_start on the household file). However, if one household’s tenancy ends and another household’s tenancy starts in the same dwelling on the same day, the vacancy start date should be set equal to the date the previous household ended their tenancy, (i.e. equal to dt_end of the previous household on the household file. Such a vacancy episode has a duration of zero days).
