Median home value is defined as the median value of the American Community Survey respondents’ estimate of the market value of their property (house and lot).
The data on median home value were collected as part of the American Community Survey, a nationwide survey designed to provide communities with demographic, social, economic and housing data every year. It has an annual sample size of about 3 million addresses across the U.S. and Puerto Rico and includes both housing units and group quarters. This tabulation includes only specified owner-occupied housing units and excludes mobile homes, houses with a business or medical office, houses on 10 or more acres, and housing units in multi-unit structures. The data have been adjusted for inflation using the 2011 average Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers. The median home value is updated annually by the U.S. Census Bureau.
