I have been trying to find an ACS (five-year) cross-class table that includes HH income by HH size (eg, 4 INC groups x 3 SIZE groups). Is there an obvious table that I have completely missed? Is there a way to build such a cross-class (or expected values) table using separate ACS data on HH income and HH size? I'd appreciate any guidance you may have or resources I should consult.
If you don't mind using old ACS 2012-16 data, then try the CTPP database. data5.ctpp.transportation.org/.../ It has at least four crosstabs that include household size (5 levels) X household income (number of levels varies)
Possibly the crosstabs you want are
A112208 (not available for all geographies)
orA112301 or A112303 or A112306 (each of these has a third variable cross tabbed)
CTPP is updated roughly twice per decade. I'm not an insider -- but the last I heard was that CTPP from 2017-21 survey data would be published in summer 2024 (and that's optimistically = if disclosure review board is happy and there are no other bureaucratic snags).
hope that helps.
Thanks, Todd. I'm trying to avoid the use of the 2012-2016 CTPP data and applying its cell %s to 2020 HH data. I believe the next CTPP data product will be 2020-2024. I was hoping there was a way to build a contingency table of expected values based on HHs by income and size categories, but I don't think I can do that using continuous/discrete variables.
