Selected characteristics of a set of small residential properties in New Haven, CT (excluding larger multi-family properties and apartment buildings).
A data frame with 18221 observations on the following 8 variables.
the 2006 assessed value of the property
the living area in square feet
the amount of depreciation, as a percent
the size of the land, in acres
the residential zone, a factor with levels
whether the property has central air conditioning: a factor with levels
the number of bedrooms
the number of bathrooms
The data have been cleaned somewhat, with emphasis on somewhat. For example,there is a property (a very nice one), which has an extremely low assessed value, given its characteristics. It happens to straddle the border between New Haven and Hamden, and so it pays only a proportion of it's property taxes to the City of New Haven.
