Fair Market Rent Documentation System

2005 FMR Summary for San Francisco, CA PMSA

This sytem provides complete documentation of the development of the 2005 Fair Market Rents (FMRs) for San Francisco, CA PMSA. This page provides a summary of how the 2005 FMRs were developed and updated starting with the 2000 Census benchmark and including any subsequent rebenchmarking using local Random Digit Dialing (RDD) or American Housing Survey (AHS) data. Click on links in the tables below to see more detail on how the data were developed.

The 2001 through 2004 rents shown are interim rents designed to show how new data are incorporated into the FMR system to update FMRs from the 2000 Census benchmark. They differ from published final FMRs because they are what the rents would have been if calculated using the best data available in 2004, including 2000 Census benchmark rents and survey data for the indicated year.
