SPM unit's number of adults


This is a 2-digit numeric variable.


SPMNADULTS records the number of adults in the family unit used to calculate the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM). The SPM family units are defined differently from the family units used to calculate official poverty; SPM family units are identified in SPMFAMUNIT.


SPMNADULTS is comparable across years from 2010 to 2018.

In 2019, the Census Bureau implemented a new processing system to accommodate survey changes. These changes affect income and relationship variables, making poverty measurements before and after 2019 incomparable. For more information on this overhaul, see our guide to the 2019 ASEC updates.
