Aggregate Gross Rent
Aggregate gross rent is calculated by adding together all the gross rents for all specified housing units in an area. Aggregate gross rent is rounded to the nearest hundred dollars. (For more information, see "Aggregate" under "Derived Measures.")

Meals Included in Rent
The data on meals included in the rent were obtained from Housing Question 15b in the 2008 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.
Question/Concept History
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.
