Des Moines County Home Value Statistics
Unlike the Census—which is an exact count of people and households every ten years—ACS statistics are estimated based on a representative survey sample. The data in this story only considers owner-occupied housing units.
For locations with populations under 60,000, the ACS is only available in 5-year estimates, rather than single-year periods. The 5-year estimates provide greater geographical granularity but a less granular time period.
