Any geography (ZIP code, city, metro area, county or state, and even subdivision in some areas) can be considered a “neighborhood” in RPR. The neighborhood data shown in RPR comes from the following sources:
- Housing data, including median estimated home value, median list price, median sales price, listing volume, sales volume and sales counts, are aggregated and updated by RPR each month using licensed AVM, public records and MLS data. Counts for households in an area come from U.S. Census data and are different from property counts, as the Census definition of a household is not the same as a property.

- People data, including average income and occupations, are updated annually by RPR and sourced from the U.S. Census. Voter registration data are sourced from USElectionAtlas.org and updated every four years, following presidential elections.
- Economy data, including unemployment and building permits, are sourced from the U.S. Census and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Update frequency for the data ranges from monthly to annually.
- Quality of life data, including commuter and climate information, are sourced from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Census and are updated annually by RPR.
