SPMCAPHOUS measures the value of federal housing assistance received by members of a family and is used to calculate the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM). The value of housing assistance is estimated using matched administrative data and is capped at the housing proportion of the SPM threshold minus the family contribution to housing costs.
For more information, see the Census Bureau's "Estimating the Value of Federal Housing Assistance for the Supplemental Poverty Measure" document.
SPMCAPHOUS is expressed in current dollars; users can adjust for inflation with Consumer Price Index adjustment factors.
