This poster examines the effect of using administrative records instead of self-reported data on estimating the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM). We show that source data matters. For the state of Maryland between 2009-2012, the overall SPM rate is reduced from 11.3 percent to 11.0 percent. Overall, this pilot project demonstrates the value added in conducting further research in using administrative records to refine and improve national estimates.
