New Feature – Parkesburg Numbers

>On a regular basis, thanks to Google Alerts and the 8 or 9 newspapers I read everyday, I come across interesting numbers that relate to life in Parkesburg.  I’ll post these as a regular feature of the blog.

This morning two graphs about the value of our houses and Parkesburg resident’s response rate to the US Census.

First Parkesburg’s home values.  Like almost everywhere else, our home values increased 10 to 15 percent annually through 2007 but came back down a bit as the recession hit in the Fall of 2008.  If the estimates from  Zillow.com are accurate it looks like home values are on a bit of a rebound.  Lets hope the trend continues.

Check out the numbers and see how Parkesburg compares to neighboring towns at http://www.zillow.com/local-info/PA-Parkesburg-home-value/r_42672//?scid=emm-2007292MarchlocalClaim-bab.

The second number comes courtesy of Google.  The Census Bureau and Google have teamed up to track the percentage of forms returned to the Census Bureau in real time.  Here’s a snapshot of Parkesburg resident’s response rate:

You can track the percentage of census forms returned for each city, county and state by visiting http://2010.census.gov/2010census/take10map/.
