The data presented here are from the March 1995 supplement to the Current Population Survey, the source of official income and poverty estimates. The CPS is a sample survey of approximately 60,000 households nationwide. These data reflect conditions in calendar year 1994.
(The figures in parentheses denote 90-percent confidence intervals.)
NOTE: During the period April 1994 through June 1995, the Bureau of the Census systematically introduced a new sample design for the Current Population Survey (CPS) based on the results of the 1990 Decennial Census. During this phase-in-period, CPS estimates were being made from two distinct sample designs, the old 1980 sample design and the new 1990 sample design. The March 1995 CPS consisted of 55 percent new (1990) sample and 45 percent old (1980) sample. Since overlap in the sample design does not permit the development of estimates for metropolitan/non-metropolitan categories that are comparable to either the 1980 or 1990 census definitions, estimates of these categories have been omitted from this report.
