Data on kitchen facilities were obtained from Housing Question 10 in the 2006 American Community Survey. The question was asked at both occupied and vacant housing units. A unit has complete kitchen facilities when it has all three of the following facilities: (d) a sink with a faucet, (e) a stove or range, and (f) a refrigerator. All kitchen facilities must be located in the house, apartment, or mobile home, but they need not be in the same room. A housing unit having only a microwave or portable heating equipment such as a hot plate or camping stove should not be considered as having complete kitchen facilities. An icebox is not considered to be a refrigerator.
The 1996-1998 American Community Survey questions asked whether the house or apartment had complete kitchen facilities, requiring that the three facilities all be in the same unit. In 1999, the American Community Survey added "mobile home" to the question, and capitalized the word "COMPLETE" for emphasis.

The data on meals included in the rent were obtained from Housing Question 18b in the 2006 American Community Survey. The question was asked of occupied housing units that were rented and vacant housing units that were for rent at the time of enumeration.
Since 1996, the American Community Survey questions have been the same. Starting in 2004, 'meals included in rent' is shown for all renter-occupied housing units. In previous years (1996-2003), it was shown only for specified renter-occupied housing units.
