Question on Resident Classification for Extended Stay Hotels

Dear All (Including Bureau Folks):

How are extended stay hotels treated.  One of our Social Explorer users had this questions:  " Do households include families living in extended stay motels b/c a large number of our student families live in extended stay."

  • Hi, Andy. Hotels/motels are counted through the Enumeration of Transitory Locations (ETL) operation. The 2020 Census Operational Plan (v. 4) has a description. Hope this helps!
