ADVISORY:
Some differences in housing unit counts are attributable to definitional differences in the source data. 2000 data are based on the 2000 Census. 2006
estimates are based on information from the San Diego County Assessor's office. The Census Bureau and Assessor’s office use different definitions
of "single-family," "multi-family," and "mobile home."
Caution should be taken when using data for small population groups, particularly at small levels of geography. Some 2000 Census data may not
match information published by the U.S. Census Bureau for the following reasons: sample census data have been controlled to match 100 percent
count (Summary File 1) data; and some minor adjustments were made (such as correcting the location of housing units that were erroneously
allocated by the Census Bureau to roads and open space) to more accurately reflect the region’s true population and housing distribution.
