The data files provide county-level data. Income limits and FMRs are the same for all parts of a metropolitan area. In New England, a county may be split among metropolitan areas and have a nonmetropolitan part. You must use state, county, and metropolitan area codes to find the income limits or FMRs for a New England township.

Similar information is available for FY 1997, FY 1998, FY 1999, revisions to FY 1999, FY 2000, and FY 2001.
