Median gross rent as a percentage of household income in 1999
This measure divides the gross rent as a percentage of household income distribution into two equal parts, one-half of the cases falling below the median gross rent as a percentage of household income and one-half above the median. Median gross rent as a percentage of household income is computed on the basis of a standard distribution (see the "Standard Distributions" section under Derived Measures). Median gross rent as a percentage of household income is rounded to the nearest tenth. (For more information on medians, see "Derived Measures".)
