City Statistics: Dwelling vacancy rate

A high dwelling rate makes the search for and the choice of accommodation easier and influences the price of housing on offer. Looking for suitable accommodation can take up a lot of time which would otherwise, for example, be spent with family or on leisure activities. An insufficient supply may impede a need to move, make it necessary to change neighbourhoods or to choose more expensive or less well-situated dwellings. This can sometimes lead to a longer daily commute or place a burden on the household budget.
