Unit Bedroom Count Adjustments AGENCY: Schedule B, available at https:// www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/ fmr.html, shows the FMRs for zerobedroom through four-bedroom units. The Schedule B addendum shows Small Area FMRs for all metropolitan areas. The FMRs for unit sizes larger than four bedrooms may be calculated by adding 15 percent to the four-bedroom FMR for each extra bedroom. For example, the FMR for a five-bedroom unit is 1.15 times the four-bedroom FMR, and the FMR for a six-bedroom unit is 1.30 times the four-bedroom FMR. FMRs for single-room-occupancy (SRO) units are 0.75 times the zero-bedroom FMR. 3. Arrangement of FMR Areas and Identification of Constituent Parts a. The FMR areas in the online Schedule B are listed alphabetically by metropolitan FMR area and by nonmetropolitan county within each state and are available at https:// www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/ fmr.html. b. The constituent counties (and New England towns and cities) included in each metropolitan FMR area are listed immediately following the listings of the FMR dollar amounts. All constituent parts of a metropolitan FMR area that are in more than one state can be identified by consulting the listings for each applicable state. c. Two non-metropolitan counties are listed alphabetically on each line of the non-metropolitan county listings. d. The New England towns and cities included in a non-metropolitan county are listed immediately following the county name.
