I am trying to identify a table listing the number of households at and below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.
I need this for counties, so an ACS table would be preferable.
Sorry if this is too obvious.
I'll see if this makes sense.
B17026 RATIO OF INCOME TO POVERTY LEVEL OF FAMILIES IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS
...but that's families, not households. I don't know if this is available by household.
Hi Adam - Just out of curiosity, are you looking to estimate eligibility for the Affordable Connectivity Program? I ask because 200% of the FPL is the guideline for eligibility and that's something I've been working on lately. Let me know if you'd like to chat about it sometime.
To comment on Glenn's comment. I've just been through a round with the people at the Census on reconciling "below poverty" from the PUMS with "below poverty" for table B17001. Poverty is not defined for households only for families which includes only people in the household who are related to the "head of household." For example a renter not related to the family is not included in the calculation and is not part of the "universe." For the calculation with partial details see: https://www.census.gov/topics/income-poverty/poverty/guidance/poverty-measures.html. You add up the income for all family members and then apply the formula which is based on total family income, number of family members and number of children. Here is the email that I just received from the people at the Census: (regarding matching numbers from B17001 and the calculation using the PUMS variables POVPIP RELSHIPP TYPEHUGQ AGEP.
