Dividing B25033 (Total Pop in units in structure) by B25044 (Units in Structure) will give
you average household size by units type. CTPP 2006-2008 also provides a table (Table
14210) household size by household unit type at county level.

Table B25024 provides units in structure and has fields like single unit attached,
detached, mobile home, etc. I am assuming that you are requiring this data for modeling
purposes. The 2006-2010 data is available at the census block group level. We use this
data for our Activity Based Model.

What is meant by "housing type"? Do you mean tenure (own/rent) or structure
type (single family, apartment, etc.)?
For tenure, table B25008 in the ACS provides total population in occupied housing units.by
tenure Dividing that by the count of occupied housing units by tenure (B25002) will give
you pph by tenure. Or, you can just look at B25010.
Similarly, B25033 gives you total population in occupied housing units by tenure by units
in structure. Divide by units in structure counts (by tenure, or add them together) to get
pph by units in structure.
Hope this helps.

I’m trying to figure out how to calculate PPH by Housing Type using the
ACS. We use this data for making our TAZ level population estimates. I
understand the Census Bureau provided this information with the 2000
census, but I don’t see it in either the 2010 census data or any of the
ACS data. Any suggestions.
