Appraisal District Findings
The CAD Summary Worksheet by county name is available in HTML or PDF. More information is available from this page for CAD and ISD preliminary results.

The statewide median appraisal ratios and coefficients of dispersion for each property category and overall are in the next two tables.

The appraisal district summary includes, for each property category, the median appraisal ratio, the coefficient of dispersion (COD), the percentage of observations within 10 percent of the median, the percentage of observations within 25 percent of the median and the price-related differential.

These terms and indicators are discussed under Appraisal District Statistics.

Potter and Randall Counties are consolidated into a single appraisal district. The results appear under “Potter-Randall Appraisal District.”

Statewide Median Appraisal Ratios
1993 through 2003 Property Value Studies
The table below compares the statewide median appraisal ratios from the 1993 to 2003*** Property Value Studies. The statewide median appraisal ratio for an individual property category was calculated using the appraisal ratios of all Property Tax Division sample properties in that category from across the state. The overall statewide median appraisal ratio was calculated using the appraisal ratios for all sample properties.

** Too few sample observations were available to produce meaningful statewide median appraisal ratios for these properties.

Statewide Coefficients of Dispersion
1993 through 2003 Property Value Studies
The table below compares the statewide coefficients of dispersion from the 1993 to 2003*** Property Value Studies. The statewide coefficient of dispersion for an individual property category was calculated using the appraisal ratios of all Property Tax Division sample properties in that category from across the state. The overall statewide coefficient of dispersion was calculated using the appraisal ratios for all sample properties.
