The Supplemental Poverty Measure: 2016

Report Number P60-261
Trudi Renwick and Liana Fox

Erratum Note

The U.S. Census Bureau identified an error in the input of SPM thresholds for renters used in the 2016 SPM data products. The base threshold should have been $26,104 and was erroneously entered as $26,014. This error affected the SPM poverty status for 109 unweighted observations. As a result, the overall SPM poverty rate was understated by 0.06 percentage points—13.91 in published tables compared to 13.97 percent. Corrected tables, research files, and a revised report have all been reissued.

This Erratum Table provides a comparison of the revised SPM 2016 estimates to the previously published SPM 2016 estimates for all groups included in Table A-1 of the report.
