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.")

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.
