SPMEITC
SPM unit's Earned Income Tax Credit

Description

SPMEITC represents the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), rounded to the nearest dollar, of an SPM family unit. This variable is used to calculate Federal tax liability after credits (SPMFEDTAXAC).

Because the ACS does not collect information about a household's tax obligations or if the respondent even filed taxes, the Census Bureau used the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER)'s TAXSIM tool to generate values for SPMFEDTAXAC, SPMFEDTAXBC, SPMEITC, SPMFICA, and SPMSTTAX.

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.

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