Definitions: A model-based estimate of county residents living below the federal poverty threshold. The Census Bureau creates this estimate based on administrative data derived from tax returns, counts of food stamp participants, data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), decennial census estimates, intercensal population estimates, and Annual Social and Economic Supplements of the Current Population Survey (CPS). Beginning with the estimates for 2005, data from the American Community Survey are used in the estimation procedure in place of CPS data.
