Description
  • Abstract

    Beginning in March 1980, the Current Population Survey has included questions on participation in a selected group of noncash benefit programs including the National School Lunch Program, Food Stamp Program, public or other subsidized rental housing programs, Medicare, and Medicaid. These questions serve as the basis for valuing noncash benefits and estimating the effect they have on poverty.
