What is the limitation of the data that is provided by the counties for each year?
The standard property attributes that are captured in the annual county assessment data can vary year to year depending on what information is made available by the county. It is possible for a county to limit or suppress the population of specific data element based on changes in law.
How does Black Knight account to changes in the data identification over the long history of reporting?
Black Knight uses a persisted property ID “DPID” with the assessment history data set which allows linking of properties over time. The common property identifier FIPS and more specifically Assessor Parcel Number (APN) can change from one year to the next due to APN formatting or renumbering changes implemented by the county, but DPID overcomes those APN changes challenges by persisting the ID value.
