Excerpt
Introduction: This report describes alternative procedures for valuing noncash benefits received by the low-income population and estimates the effect of these benefits on the size and composttion of the poverty population in 1983. The report updates the estimates for 1979 to 1982 presented in Technical Paper 51 (issued in February 1984), using identical methods to value noncash benefits. Each of these methods is subject to many conceptual and measurement problems. In addition, there is as yet no consensus concerning either the relative merits of the three methods or the appropriateness of incorporating noncash benefits into the poverty measure in any form; therefore, all the work in this report should be viewed as exploratory in nature. The Bureau of the Censushas been the source of the official estimates of the poverty population since 1969 as specified in Directive No. 14 issued by the Office of Management and 8udget. Estimates of the poverty population have been published annually since that time based on the cash or money income data collected in the March Current Population Survey (CPS). In March 1980, the Bureau began collecting data on participation in a selected group of noncash benefit programs. Questions covering participation in the National School Lunch Program, Food Stamp Program, public and other subsidized rental housing programs, Medicare. and Medicaid have been a permanent part of the March survey since that time. These serve as the basis for examining procedures for valuing benefits and estimating the effect on poverty for this study.
