Data are facts on people, places and business collected in censuses and surveys and through administrative records (e.g., birth certificates). The results released based on these data collections are often called statistics.

The sources of the data published on census.gov are the Census Bureau and other federal agencies, if applicable.

The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) periodically collects detailed wealth data. The main objective of SIPP is to provide accurate and comprehensive information about the income and program participation of individuals and households in the United States, and about the principal determinants of income and program participation. SIPP offers detailed information on cash and non-cash income on a sub-annual basis. SIPP data allow the government to evaluate the effectiveness of federal, state, and local programs.
