* Cumulative totals used because most counties do not have very many cases in an individual year; to determine the number of cases in a county for 2013, subtract the 2006-2012 total from the 2006-2013 total. Cases filed does not indicate how many cases were successful. Housing discrimination can include being refused an opportunity to rent or buy housing, being denied a loan, being told that housing was not available when in fact it was, or otherwise being treated differently from others seeking housing due to race, disability, familial status, religion, sex, or retaliation for asserting your rights.

General Notes: *Median value gives the value for the "average" county for this metric, the 50th percentile of all counties reporting data. **Value calculated by SAGE using data from individual cases supplied by Fair Housing/Equal Opportunity. Visit their webpage for information on individual cases. Total cases may not equal the sum of reporting basis since cases may be filed on multiple discriminatory bases. Counts cases in which the complainant alleges they were treated differently due to race.
