We're excited to provide you USPS vacancy data nationwide at the parcel level, something that to our knowledge has not been done before. While aggregated USPS vacancy data is a widely-accepted indicator and has been used in academic studies and research since at least 2010, there has rarely been a way to crack that data open and see how those aggregations have been made, or how reliable the data is. We are able to offer this information right at the parcel level for granular insights.
To get access to this amazing data you'll want to license our premium dataset in bulk, or sign up for one of our SaaS subscriptions. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions or are interested in a quote.

The United States Postal Service maintains a database of every deliverable address in the US.
This data is collected and maintained by their letter carriers.
As part of their regular processes, letter carriers identify addresses as either primarily residential or non-residential delivery points. That information is recorded as what the USPS calls their "Residential Delivery Indicator" (RDI).
There are times when the letter carriers record addresses that are valid addresses, but for some reason are not currently collecting their mail. This is recorded as a "Vacant Flag". It is important to understand these addresses could receive mail, but are not currently receiving mail. This is different from addresses that are not considered valid for receiving mail, for example addresses that might be assigned to new developments where buildings have not been built or are not yet occupied.
You can get our data not just through bulk files but also through the API and by the county and state at the Data Store.
