Who's numbers - if the US Census Bureau thinks this is an average - for all? Most places I have lived the Property Taxes are near this bottom number ($431), then add insurance and utilities? No way! I need to know where these folks live... In the USA?

These are median monthly housing costs for households in the US. They come from the Census Bureau's 2010 American Community Survey. I agree they seem low!
