Survey of Income and Program Participation

The U.S. Census Bureau released statistics from the first wave of the 2014   Survey of Income and Program Participation . This is the Census Bureau's premier survey for measuring the dynamics of income, employment, health insurance and participation in government transfer programs. Accompanying the release are six research briefs that illustrate important demographic, fertility, program and wealth measures. The Census Bureau will release additional briefs highlighting other relevant topics from the first wave over the coming months. Briefs from the second wave of the survey are tentatively scheduled for late September. The   Survey of Income and Program Participation  
is a longitudinal survey that involves repeated observations of the same people over a four-year period. It allows researchers to understand how income level and participation in assistance programs change over time.
