Housing Unit Growth, 1980 to 1990

August 04, 1990

According to the state Department of Finance, Orange County had a 21% increase in the number of housing units during the 1980s. But several cities' housing stock grew much more. At the top of the list, Yorba Linda almost doubled the number of what the state calls housing units--that is, year-round, vacant seasonal and/or migratory worker housing.

Aside from Yorba Linda, the big growth was predominantly a South County occurrence. Irvine, Tustin, Laguna Beach, San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano all had percentage increases significantly higher than the countywide rate. Here are the city-to-city changes, listed from highest to lowest percentage:
