2003 Poverty Estimation Procedure for Puerto Rico

The estimates are based on data from the Family Income Survey conducted for the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the Department of Labor and Human Resources, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The survey was conducted during June, July, and August 2004, and was designed to mimic the Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC) to the Current Population Survey (CPS) conducted in the Mainland United States. Data are available for 1,149 of the 1,345 valid households in the sample. The questionnaire was administered in face-to-face personal interviews. Income questions refer to money income received during 2003 and resemble the questions used in the CPS ASEC in the breadth of income sources for which data are collected.
