But the original post wasn't about how much anyone makes, but about how the Sun (the developer?) used some statistical measurement to artificially fatten up the resident's wallets to the advertisers. I found it somewhat shameless, and pity the poor advertiser who thinks it's meaningful. Things went pretty far astray from the original all along the thread!

2000 Census at

http://factfinder.census.gov/servlet...s=209728471968

for tract 9908 (some of Sumter Landing).

Unless this a slum area I expect it would be a good sample of TV.

Population 10,316
Median Household Income $41,233
Housing Units 6,246
Avg HHold Size 1.92
Median Home Value $128,500
Median Real Estate Tax $1516

Does that sound right?

These numbers are hard to find and I expect they can be expanded, but would probably include non TV population which would skew the results.

I bought in 2001. We had about 25000 in population in TV (Lake, Sumter, Marion counties). DIvide by 1.9 is about 13157 houses. In 2003, the housing market when crazy and so did the prices of houses in TV so these numbers are very low in my thinking.

Although the data contained in the below link is a bit dated, it is 'unbiased'

Like others, I find it hard to believe that drastic a swing in less than two years.
