Estimates of Child Care Eligibility and Receipt for Fiscal Year 2009. Poverty Status


In Appendix Tables 1, 2, 3, and 5, poverty status is based on 2009 poverty thresholds published by the U.S. Census Bureau, Housing and Household Economic Statistics Division. Since state-submitted Form-801 CCDF monthly child care data reports show recipients’ monthly income, the Census Bureau threshold is divided by twelve to create a comparable monthly threshold. Due to the source and limitations of data, the family income used to estimate poverty status of children who receive subsidies is calculated differently than for children who are eligible for subsidies. Recipient poverty status is based on family income used to determine child care subsidy eligibility, as reported by the state on Form-801 CCDF monthly child care data report for fiscal year 2009. Family income is reported after any relevant income disregards have been applied. Poverty status of eligible children is determined based on full family income reported to the Current Population Survey for calendar year 2009 prior to application of any relevant income disregard.
