dwelling vs housing

Around here housing is a general term, dwelling is specific. The term "unit" doesn't really help IMHO.

Means the same thing to me.

The US Census Bureau definition is
Housing unit
A house, an apartment, a mobile home or trailer, a group of rooms, or a single room occupied as separate living quarters, or if vacant, intended for occupancy as separate living quarters. Separate living quarters are those in which the occupants live separately from any other individuals in the building and which have direct access from outside the building or through a common hall. For vacant units, the criteria of separateness and direct access are applied to the intended occupants whenever possible.
