New Census Data Highlights Changes in Housing Values

The Census Bureau today released new data from its 2005 American Community Survey detailing changes in housing values. According to a news release, the data include "housing characteristic information such as occupancy, units in structure, year built, rooms, occupants per room, vehicles available, house heating fuel, value, mortgage status, gross rent, selected monthly owner costs and other characteristics.... The data are available for nearly 7,000 areas, including all congressional districts and counties, cities and American Indian/Alaska Native areas of 65,000 population or more. This survey is a first look at key housing information for many communities since Census 2000 – including 75 of the top 100 fastest growing cities."

Data for Boulder City, Boulder County, or other geographical areas can be found through the Census Bureau's American Factfinder website. Just click on the fact sheet link on the left, and enter your city, county, or state.
