Code: TJ-8000.3400

Programs that produce statistical summaries of data on income and poverty derived from individual and corporate tax returns, returns filed by tax-exempt organizations, census data, specialized surveys or other applicable sources. Included may be summaries of per capita income, median household income and median family income; information on wealth e.g., median net worth and distribution of net worth; price and cost indices; updated information on poverty thresholds and poverty guidelines; estimated poverty rates; and other income and poverty measures. Statistical data may be national in scope or may focus on states or substate areas such as counties and cities/towns; may include information about individual/household characteristics that support studies of poverty/economic well-being among children, people with disabilities, ethnic communities or other groups; and may include single year estimates or multi-year estimates that can support longitudinal analysis.
