America's Emptiest Cities

Dayton, Ohio

Home Vacancy Rate: 3.3%

Apartment Vacancy Rate: 26.4%

The home to Delphi auto parts and the former National Cash Register Co. was hit hard by the collapse of the auto industry. It also has a stock of decaying pre-World War II housing that city officials are fast demolishing. Unemployment, which spiked to 12.6 percent in early 2010, is now below 10%, but the city's population has declined 16% since 2000. Bright spots: A booming health care industry and aerospace jobs linked to nearby Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
