These data come from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey. They are based on averages of data collected in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. These estimates cannot be used to say what is going on in any particular year in the period, only what the average value is over the full period. The Census Bureau's data.census.gov also provides 1-year estimates for counties with at least 65,000 people. We use 5-year estimates because they are available for all counties and allow comparison to other counties within the region.
The value of owner occupied housing is the census respondent's estimate of how much the property (house and lot, mobile home and lot, or condominium unit) would sell for if it were for sale. The median value is the level at which half the housing units have a higher value and half have a lower value. Here, we present the real median value, which means the data have been adjusted for inflation.
