## Vacancy Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Vacancy Rate.

VR = V / OU * 100

- Where VR is the Vacancy Rate (%)
- V is the total number of vacancies
- OU is the total number of open units/positions

To calculate the vacancy rate, divide the number of vacancies by the total number of open positions.

## How to Calculate Vacancy Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Vacancy Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total number of vacancies.
- The total number of vacancies is given as: 50.

- Next, determine the total number of open units/positions.
- The total number of open units/positions is provided as: 300.

- Finally, calculate the Vacancy Rate using the equation above:

VR = #V / #OU * 100

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

VR = 50 / 300 * 100 = 16.66 (%)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total number of vacancies = 60

total number of open units/positions = 500

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

VR = #V / #OU * 100** = ?**
