New Survey of Income and Program Participation Data Now Available

Release Number CB17-TPS.82
Component ID: #ti1541379175

NOV. 17, 2017 — The U.S. Census Bureau released a new brief “Participation Rates in Other Assistance Programs: 2013,” highlighting the measurement of participation in assistance programs which are not part of the major federal funded social safety net programs. The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) asks respondents about the use of other assistance programs: food, transportation, clothing and housing assistance. 

The SIPP is a longitudinal survey that samples the same individuals over a four-year period. It provides comprehensive information about the income and program participation of individuals and households in the United States, as well as the principal determinants of income and program participation.

The Census Bureau will release additional SIPP briefs highlighting other relevant topics over the coming months.
