Description

ADJGINC is the estimated Adjusted Gross Income (AGI), rounded to the nearest dollar, for an SPM Unit. It measures a family's total taxable income minus certain items, such as individual retirement plan contributions (payments to a Keogh plan or a deductible Individual Retirement Account), alimony paid, medical savings accounts, and non-reimbursed employee business expenses. ADJGINC minus deductions and exemptions equals a household's taxable income and is used to calculate a family's total tax liability.

It is important for users to note that the Census Bureau does not collect the same detailed income and expenditure data for the ACS as it does for the Annual Social and Economic Supplement of the Current Population Survey (CPS ASEC). Many of the data points used to calculate the SPM have been imputed or estimated using values from the CPS ASEC. For detailed information about how the Census Bureau derived these measures, please refer to the Supplemental Poverty Measure Using the American Community Survey working paper.

ADJGINC is a 7-digit numeric variable that is used to calculate the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM) for a family. ADJGINC specific variable codes for missing, edited, or unidentified observations, observations not applicable (N/A), observations not in universe (NIU), top and bottom value coding, etc. are provided below if applicable by Census year (and data sample if specified).
