Answer: In some cases
Explanation: The upper floors of a vacant house will likely have higher radon levels than a similar occupied house if a normal occupied temperature is maintained.  The basement ventilation level of a vacant house, however, is not likely to be significantly different than an occupied house and therefore is likely to be a similar radon level.  Note that radon does not build up to higher levels the longer a home is vacant because of normal natural ventilation.
