The Office of Management and Budget relase new Core Based Statistical Area definitions in February 2013.  The Census American Community Survey Incorporated these definitions in the ACS2013 Release, which are the basis for FY2016 Fair Market Rents.  HUD has elected to continue use of the pre-2013 definitions except where the post-2013 definitions result in a smaller FMR area.  This is consistent with HUD's objective to maximize tenant choice by allowing FMRs to vary locally.

Butler County, Ohio is part of the Cincinnati-Middleton, OH-KY-IN HUD Metro FMR Area, which consists of the following counties:  Dearborn County, Indiana; Ohio County, Indiana; Boone County, Kentucky; Bracken County, Kentucky; Campbell County, Kentucky; Gallatin County, Kentucky; Kenton County, Kentucky; Pendleton County, Kentucky; Butler County, Ohio; Clermont County, Ohio; Hamilton County, Oho; and Warren County, Ohio.  All information here applies to the entirety of the Cincinnati-Middleton, OH-KY-IN HUD Metro FMR Area.

Fair Market Rent Calculation Methodology

Fair Market Rents for metropolitan areas and non-metropolitan FMR areas are developed as follows:

  • 2009-2013 5-year American Community Survey (ACS) estimates of 2-bedroom adjusted standard quality gross rents calculated for each FMR area are used as the new basis for FY2016 provided the estimate is statistically reliable.  The test for reliability is whether the margin of error for the estimate is less than 50% of the estimate itself.
