In Question 6 we asked you to guess the number of households in the city that are defined as being in core housing need. This visualization allows you to compare this issue with another problematic aspect in Toronto’s housing market: the number of residential units that are not permanently occupied by usual residents (a definition which includes both unoccupied units and short-term rentals). 

We used these two values, together with median prices for residential units, to generate a portrait for each neighbourhood in the city. They are arranged as a grid of small multiples—but you can change their order! Try sorting them based on one of the values or on their location in the city, to spot different patterns in the data. You can also highlight specific areas or look for your neighbourhood.
