Per capita rent

Rent: Rental income is the net income of persons from the rental of real property except for the income of persons primarily engaged in the real estate business; the imputed net rental income of the owner-occupants of nonfarm dwellings; and the royalties received from patents, copyrights, and the right to natural resources.

This measure of income is calculated as the rental income of the residents of a given area divided by the resident population of the area. In computing per capita rent, BEA uses the Census Bureau's annual midyear population estimates.
