in the country, according to the Ohio Department of Insurance.
According to 2011 data, the most recent available from the
National Association of Insurance Commissioners, Ohioans paid on average $652
per year, which was the sixth lowest for the second consecutive year. The
national average premium was $968 per year.
The average homeowner's insurance premium is a weighted
average of all the policy forms. It is determined by dividing the total
premium for a state by the number of insured homes.
