Time Series Data
Time-series data are available for program participation counts since 1997 (and for 1989, 1993, and 1995). Estimates of program benefits are available since 1969; some county-level benefits data are imputed. Estimates of population counts and persons in poverty are available for selected years.
Information in this dataset is provided in an Excel spreadsheet, consisting of four worksheets:
- Notes about coding conventions and data sources,
- Flags to identify States and years in which program benefit data have been imputed by ERS,
- State for State-level data, and
- County for county-level data. In general, the same variables are available on both the State- and county-level files.
