Manufactured Housing Survey (MHS)

Manufactured Housing Survey (MHS) web banner


The Manufactured Housing Survey (MHS) is sponsored by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The MHS produces monthly regional estimates of the average sales price for new manufactured homes and more detailed annual estimates including selected characteristics of new manufactured homes. In addition, MHS produces monthly estimates of homes shipped by status. The statistics on shipments of new manufactured homes are produced by the Institute for Building Technology and Safety (IBTS) and published by the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI). MHS coverage includes all new manufactured homes that have received a Federal inspection (i.e., HUD-code homes).
