MOBLHOM2
Annual mobile home costs including loan payments

Description

MOBLHOM2 reports the annual amount of special costs incurred by mobile home owners. This measure is similar to MOBLHOME (available for the 1990 census samples, the 2003-onward ACS samples, and the 2005-onward PRCS), except that MOBLHOM2 also includes installment loan payments (see MOBLOAN), while MOBLHOME does not.

The following costs are included in MOBLHOM2: installment loan payments, land or site rent, registration fees, license fees, and personal property taxes. (Personal property taxes do not include the real estate taxes reported in PROPTX99.) Respondents were to report the full amount of such costs, even if payments were delinquent or paid by someone outside the household; they were not to include unpaid obligations from previous years.

The reference period for the census samples was "last year"; the ACS asked about the "annual costs." Amounts are reported in contemporary dollars, and users must adjust for inflation (See INCTOT for Consumer Price Index adjustment factors).
