For many, the financial support received from people outside their household can be an important source of income. In most cases, payments are made to help support children, but they can also support other nonhousehold members, such as an elderly parent. This report looks at monetary support provided for people living in other households, particularly children under 21. The data in this report are from the 2001 panel of the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), a national longitudinal survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. Interviews for the Support for Nonhousehold Members Topical Module were collected from June through September of 2002.1 Questions about interhousehold financial support payments refer to those made in the 12 months prior to the interview. (See Text Box: Who is a support provider?)

1 The data in this report were collected from June through September 2002 in the fifth wave (interview) of the 2001 SIPP. The population represented (the population universe) is the civilian noninstitutionalized population of the United States.
