The data for this visualization comes from the American Community Survey which is conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The data is available at https://factfinder.census.gov/. I used the 2016 1 year estimate for median rent found on table DP04. Once I had gathered the data, I used Tableau to create this visualization.
