SPMCAPHOUS
SPM unit's capped housing subsidy

Description

SPMCAPHOUS is the imputed amount of housing assistance, rounded to the nearest dollar, that an SPM Unit receives from various Federal, state, and local sources. There are no questions related to housing assistance on the ACS questionnaire, so the Census Bureau imputes that amount based on data from the Annual Social and Economic Supplement of the Current Population Survey (CPS ASEC). This amount is capped based on the housing portion of the SPM threshold minus the payments the tenant makes. For detailed information about how the Census Bureau derives this measure, please refer to the Supplemental Poverty Measure using the American Community Survey working paper.

SPMCAPHOUS is used, along with other non-cash variables, to calculate SPMTOTRES.

SPMCAPHOUS is a 5-digit numeric variable that is used to calculate the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM) for a family. SPMCAPHOUS 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).
