SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The Census Bureau plans to conduct the 2008 New York City Housing and Vacancy Survey (NYCHVS) under contract for the City of New York. The primary purpose of the survey is to measure the rental vacancy rate which is the primary factor in determining the continuation of rent control regulations. Other survey information is used by city and state agencies for planning purposes as well as the private sector for business decisions. New York is required by law to have such a survey conducted every three years. Information to be collected includes: age, gender, race, Hispanic origin, and relationship of all household members; employment status, education level, and income for persons aged 15 and above. Owner/renter status (tenure) is asked for all units, including vacants. Utility costs, monthly rent, availability of kitchen and bathroom facilities, maintenance deficiencies, neighborhood suitability, and other specific questions about each unit such as number of rooms and bedrooms are also asked. The survey also poses a number of questions relating to handicapped accessibility. For vacant units, a shorter series of similar questions is asked. Finally, all vacant units and approximately five percent of occupied units will be reinterviewed for quality assurance purposes. The Census Bureau compiles the data in tabular format based on specifications of the survey sponsor, as well as nonidentifiable microdata. Both types of data are also made available to the general public through the Census Internet site. Note, however, that the sponsor receives the same data that are made generally available so as not to enable the identification of any sample respondent or household. II.

The primary purpose of the survey is to measure the rental vacancy rate 
which is the primary factor in determining the continuation of rent 
control regulations. Other survey information is used by city and state
