Data assembled by the city of Los Angeles shows a lower vacancy rate for homes on the Westside than the U.S. Census Bureau found in its 10-year head-count last April.

The vacancy rate for San Fernando Valley office space inched up to 21% by the end of the second quarter, according to the latest study by the realty firm of Grubb & Ellis. At the end of the first quarter the rate was 20%, and a year earlier it was 14%, the firm reported.
