Gross rent
Gross monthly rent, computed for tenant-occupied nonfarm dwelling units only, represents the estimated rent of the dwelling unit without furniture plus the reported average monthly cost to the tenant of water, electricity, gas, and other fuel. Rent differentials which result from varying practices with respect to inclusion of heat, utilities, and furniture as a part of the contract rent, are therefore eliminated from the gross rent figures.
