When the Census Bureau published estimates of the Supplemental Poverty Measure in November 2011, there was considerable interest in comparing the number of people with incomes between 100 and 200 percent of the poverty threshold to the number of people with SPM resources between 100 and 200 percent of the SPM thresholds. While about 19 percent of people had incomes between 100 and 200 percent of the official thresholds, 31.8 percent of people had SPM resources between 100 and 200 percent of the SPM thresholds.
