Housing Units Across LA

This map uses the 2016 LA County Assessor data to explore the number of housing units each parcel has as circles. The size and color of the circle depends on the number of units and its use type. Zooming in closer will give you an approximate count of housing units within the square of the map.

Note: The data contains over 2.3 million records, there will be inaccuracies. For example there are buildings mislabeled as single family homes in downtown LA. Condos are identified as 1 unit on what is called a stacked parcel. Documentation to be added on Github soon.
