Definitions: The number and percent of children under age 18 who are in poverty according to the supplemental poverty measure.

Data Source: 2017 Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement (CPS ASEC) Research File, 2018 CPS ASEC Bridge File, 2019-2020 CPS ASEC. Estimates represent a three-year average.

Data users should exercise caution when comparing estimates from the 2020 CPS ASEC to previous years. The data collection for the 2020 CPS ASEC occurred during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. To protect the health and safety of Census Bureau staff and respondents, interviewing methods were changed, and this led to a lower response rate than in previous years. See the March 2020 CPS ASEC technical documentation for more information.

Footnotes: Updated September 2020.
Due to an error in the tax model, all 2018 SPM estimates were revised.
