Rent Price By Bedrooms
Visualizing the median one-bedroom and two-bedroom rent prices in all 3,000 + U.S. Counties
The 2012 - 2016 American Community Survey is a 5-year study conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau that summarizes various housing and income data across the U.S.
Using this data, I decided to take a look at median one-bedroom and two-bedroom rent prices in all 3,000+ U.S. counties. The maps below show the results.
Technical note: Rent includes the cost of rent as well as utilities like water, gas, electricity, and sewer.
