Note: Market values sourced from County Tax Assessors are usually considered to be only a rough approximation of a property's value. For applications requiring a more accurate estimate of a property's value AVM models will be used.
Many, but not all, counties make assessed values available as public record data that can be collected in the same way as other data published by County Tax Assessor. ATTOM Collects this data and matches it against its property databases, assigning an ATTOM ID which allows our customers to cross-reference this data with other property data. Counties update assessed values at most once per year, with some counties only updating data every 2-3 years.
The following tables can be used to access Census Block information. When delivering solutions to customers, some or all of the information found in these tables may be consolidated into one or more views.
For each property, a history of the details about the latest assessment of the property's value and the year in which that assessment was made.

Understanding the Data
Because there is not a universally accepted standard for property identification (like the use of SSN to identify US citizens), properties can be difficult to identify. Alternatives such as APN or street address can change over time and they often lack a consistent way of being formatted. ATTOM addresses this by assigning a single, permanent identifier to each property in the form of a very precise number (integer).
A unique code is used to identify each class of boundary. For Census Block the GeoghraphyKey is 33
A unique number is assigned to each boundary of a specific class. For example, each Census Block has been assigned a unique by ATTOM separate from the numbers assigned by the US Census Department. Being a number, the performance of queries run against millions of records ATTOM CLoud data can be dramatically improved. The Geography Key is unique only for Census Blocks.
The GeoID is a 16-character string that uniquely identifies a boundary across all classes of boundaries. This key is used for special purposes such as locating the shape file with the coordinates of a boundary.
The Block Code is a 15-digit number assigned by the US Census Department that uniquely identifies a Census Block
- Block Code: 060670011011085
- State: 06 California
- County: 067 Sacramento
- Tract: 001101 Tract 11.01
- Block: 1085 Block 1085
The "name" assigned to each block is a four-digit number that is unique within a Census Tract
