SPM unit's cash income


This is a 7-digit numeric variable.


SPMFTOTVAL reports total cash income for the family and is used in the construction of the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM). This variable is measured at the level of the SPM family unit.

Amounts for SPMFTOTVAL are expressed in dollars of the given year, rather than in constant dollars adjusted for inflation. Users can adjust for inflation using Consumer Price Index adjustment factors.

For more information on calculation of the SPM, see the Census Bureau's "The Research Supplemental Poverty Measure" report.


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