These files enable researchers to replicate the estimates for the Supplemental Poverty Measure described in reports P60-251, P60-247, P60-244 and P60-241(The Research Supplemental Poverty Measure: 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010). All five files use Census 2010-based population controls. The 2009 and 2010 research files include tax estimates that differ slightly from those used to create the tables published in P60-241 (The Research Supplemental Poverty Measure: 2010).
