S&P/Case-Shiller also released the Q1 2010 National Index this morning.
By request, here is a graph that shows the national index in both nominal and real terms (adjusted with CPI less shelter).
Click on graph for larger image in new window.
In nominal terms (blue), the National Index declined 1.3% in Q1, and is 2.1% off the recent bottom in Q1 2009.
Note: Case-Shiller reported the national index declined 3.2% in Q1 (Not Seasonally Adjusted, NSA) - however I'm using the SA data.
In real terms (red), the National Index declined 1.9% in Q1, and is now at the lowest level since Q4 2000.
