Good morning. We are trying to find the best measure for looking at family poverty at the locality-level. We use B17024 for child poverty. S1702 and B17012 were suggested to me as measures for looking at family poverty. A couple of questions:
1. What is the technical difference between child poverty (B17024) and family poverty (S1702 and B17012) for the ACS tables?
2. Ideally we would like to look at family poverty at 200% FPL. It looks like S1702 does provide different levels of the FPL and B17012 is only 100% FPL. Would S1702 be the best table to look at family poverty?
3. Is the only way to look at children below 200% FPL by race and ethnicity by creating PUMS groups?
Thanks so much!
