The 1995 state and county estimate files only contain data -- no labels, no table headers, no titles. A description of the contents of the files can be found below or in the file "README" in the file directory.

Access the state and county data files for 1995


I.    File Organization:

    The files in the estmod95 FTP directory contain estimates of poverty and income
    for income year 1995. There is one FTP file for each state (or US) with data for 
    ALL the 1995 statistics.  Additionally, there is also one file that includes the 
    data for the US and each state and county. On the "Tables for States and Counties
    by Income Year and Statistic" page, for the 1995 income year, there is one table 
    for each statistic for each state (with its counties) and for the US (with all 
    the states).
