Median and Quartile Contract Rent
The median divides the rent distribution into two equal parts. Quartiles divide the rent distribution into four equal parts. In computing median and quartile contract rent, units reported as "No cash rent" are excluded. Median and quartile rent calculations are rounded to the nearest dollar. (For more information on medians and quartiles, see the discussion under "Derived Measures.")
