    Very simply put, when conducting a poll or gathering data, errors can occur.

    For example:
    Q1 "Do you own your own home"
    My answer would be no.

    Q2 "Do you own a home"
    My answer would be yes.

    Errors can also occur in selection of the sample - does it represent the population?

    One of the biggest problems with opinion polls today is that some younger people refuse to answer their phones. Whereas older people are more apt to answer a call.

    This might help explain the deviation:

    HVS: Q1 Homeownership and Vacancy Rates

    The Census Bureau released the Housing Vacancies and Homeownership report for Q1 2012 this morning.

    This report is frequently mentioned by analysts and the media to track the homeownership rate, and the homeowner and rental vacancy rates. However, based on the initial evaluation, it appears the vacancy rates are too high.

    It might show the trend, but I wouldn't rely on the absolute numbers.

    The Red dots are the decennial Census homeownership rates for April 1st 1990, 2000 and 2010. The HVS homeownership rate declined to 65.4%, down from to 66.0% in Q4 2011 and at the lowest level for this survey since the mid-90s.

    I'd put more weight on the decennial Census numbers and that suggests the actual homeownership rate is probably in the 64% to 65% range.



    The Census researchers are investigating differences in Census 2010, ACS 2010, and HVS 2010 vacant housing unit estimates, but there is no scheduled date for any report.

    The HVS homeowner vacancy rate declined to 2.2% from 2.3% in Q4. This is the lowest level since Q2 2006 for this report.

    The homeowner vacancy rate has peaked and is now declining. However - once again - this probably shows that the trend is down, but I wouldn't rely on the absolute numbers.

    Re: Voters Reject GOP Lies & Blame Bush Criminals For Economy

    Oh, this article will throw some people into righteous fury lol. I wonder if its true? That the stimulus has saved the US economy? When you consider the UK government went for austerity instead and have been in double dip recession with no prospect for recovery any time soon ... well ...

    Everything you think you know about it is wrong: stimulus saved the US economy, and only Republicans stopped it working better

    Over the next week, as Republicans gather for their national convention in Tampa, Florida, we can rest assured that the Obama epithet game will be in full effect. He's a tax-and-spender; he's an inveterate expander of federal power; he's weakened America in the world; he was born in Kenya and might be a Muslim (well, you'll only hear that if Republicans pull an Akin). What they likely won't hear is the truth about why the US economy remains in mediocre shape, and who is to blame for this distressing situation.

    For that, most Americans would be wise to simply turn off the TV and pick up a copy of Michael Grunwald's exceptional new book, The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Ear. Grunwald, a correspondent for Time magazine, has written what is likely the single best book to date on the inner workings of the Obama presidency and the $800bn stimulus measure (or American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) that Grunwald persuasively argues is Obama's greatest political achievement.

    ....

    According to Grunwald, the stimulus measure was "the biggest and most transformative energy bill in history", and "the biggest and most transformative education reform bill since the Great Society". It was also a "transformative healthcare bill", the "biggest foray into industrial policy since FDR", the "biggest expansion of antipoverty initiatives since Lyndon Johnson", and – ironically, for a president oft-accused of raising taxes – the "biggest middle-class tax cut since Reagan". It rebuilt bridges and paved roads; weatherized and retrofitted homes; and spurred the move toward high-speed rail.

    It pumped an extraordinary $90bn into the clean energy industry, propelled the US battery industry and expanded rural broadband adoption. It revamped the country's unemployment system, tackled the challenges of homelessness, began the digitizing of millions of health records, and fostered education reform through the innovative Race To The Top program. It doubled renewable power generation, significantly expanded solar production and basically birthed the country's transition to a low-carbon economy.

    In short, while Republicans blast the bill as socialist government spending run amok, the stimulus has, in just a few years, transformed America and laid the foundation for future economic growth.
    continued ...

    Hmm. People post graphs and data that show one thing, and pwrone just knows the opposite, and cant believe anyone could disagree.

    I wonder who is right? Because you dont believe something, doesnt make it untrue.
