Changes to Income Processing in the CPS ASEC

Written by:
Working Paper Number SEHSD-WP2019-18

I discuss the changes to the income section of the Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement, which were implemented in a split-panel test and 2014 and in full production from 2015 onward.  I then detail the processing changes being implemented in 2019, as a result of the redesign.  These changes include changes to imputations, edits, and income item top codes.  Finally, I analyze survey data processed using the legacy and updated processing system to understand how the processing changes affect income estimates.
