As Keith was saying, I have developed population estimates for each property parcel.  I don't know if that would be useful to you or not, but if you think it could be, let me know and I will send you Leon estimates.

You can find more information on the method here:

The methodology paper is here:

In the absence of bed/bathroom data you may be able to use one of two different approaches:

  1.  Use census population data as a proxy to estimate household size and thereby estimate number of beds/baths, gonna be pretty sketchy though
  2.  Develop a model with what data you can obtain and apply the model to those for which you do not

Georgianna at FREAC may be able to provide some insights concerning census population and household data. She has done a tremendous amount of work with this type of data to use in analyzing areas in Florida.

But I would have to agree with Brian that the type of data you are looking for is hard to come by on the interweb. May want to reach out to some real estate brokers in the area and ask if they can lend assistance.

Best of luck.

Hi Jacob,

It appears that the Leon County Property Appraiser does not collect bedroom and bathroom data. Its possible they are, but not publishing it for some reason. Call them to double check. Some Property Appraisers collect this data and others don't collect it at all. Some Property Appraisers have bed and bath data for some structures, but not all. The list of variations of what data Property Appraisers collect is large. You can pretty much count on all of them to collect data needed to satisfy FDOR's data requirements. FDOR docs are here:<*20Roll*20Data*20Files/2018_NAL_SDF_NAP_Users_Guide/__;JSUl!!PhOWcWs!nikBkH2AcBK3_auyjYOxB7icnOIafZBfKRP3282bvGiO_st42c21fTc7_KtYN5Mnrow$>

The local Realtor Association's Multiple Listing Service does collect this data, but its incomplete. Its not an inventory of every single structure in the area they cover. Good luck getting a copy of their data even if you wanted it.

If the Property Appraiser doesn't have it, I don't know of any other source for this info that is complete for all structures in the county. If you or anyone else knows of a public source - I'd like to know too!

Good evening,

My name is Jacob Long and I am a undergraduate research assistant at Florida A&M. I am currently working on a project of utilizing property parcel data to showcase the relationship between the price of a house and the distance to a body of water in Tallahassee. I have most of the variables I need to run a model like square ft of the  house, the the size of the lot, the price it was last sold or year on the attribute table for the map, and soon I will have the distances to the closest body's of water calculated.  However one variable I am missing is the number of bedrooms/ baths. Any idea of where I could get this data to add to my attribute table for my project?
