SPMGEOADJ
SPM unit's geographic shelter and utility adjustment

Description

SPMGEOADJ is used to adjust the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM) threshold (SPMTHRESH) for geographic differences in the cost of living.

The thresholds are adjusted using median gross rents for two-bedroom units from 5-year ACS data by metro/micropolitan statistical areas, metro areas of a state, and nonmetro areas of a state.

For more detail about how the Census Bureau calculates SPM for the ACS, please see the Supplemental Poverty Measure using the American Community Survey working paper.
