Texte descriptif

The FPL for federal programs variable is a recode of the continuous FPL variable. The categories we used are cutoff levels made by many federal agencies for their funding programs. The federal poverty level (FPL) variable is based on the Census Bureau poverty thresholds for 2009 by size of family and number of related children under 18 years. To construct the FPL variable the following input variables were used: total HH income ('incom5'), total people supported by HH income ('incom9'), and number of children supported by the HH income ('incom10'). In instances when incom9 or incom10 had no data, the total number of adults in the HH ('S3') and the number of children in the HH ('K2') were used. This variable is "topcoded" at 500% FPL.

The universe for this variable includes adult and child respondents (all respondents).
