Sources & Notes

Source: Supplemental Poverty Measure Public Use Research Files + Current Population Survey, Annual Social and Economic (ASEC) Supplement

Notes: While years 2009 through 2013 use the traditional income questions, years 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 use the redesigned income questions. The estimates in 2009, 2010 and 2011 use the WIC extracts to recalculate poverty using the revised values for WIC benefits found on these extract files. In April 2015, the 2013 Research File using the traditional income questions was replaced with a file that includes corrected tax variables.
