SPM unit's federal EITC


This is a 5-digit numeric variable.


SPMEITC reports the value of the earned income tax credit received by the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM) family unit. The SPM includes the value of the credit when calculating the economic resources available to the family.

In 2014, the Census Bureau updated SPMEITC values for CPS ASEC 2011 and 2010. Extracts made on IPUMS-CPS before April 15th, 2014 have the outdated values for SPMEITC. The old values are available here: Old SPM and Weights Values.

SPMEITC is expressed in dollars of the survey year; users can adjust for inflation with Consumer Price Index adjustment factors.


Aside from the effects of inflation, SPMEITC is comparable across years.
