The new data come from the Census Bureau’s 2012 Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates. The estimates combine survey data with such things as aggregated federal tax information and food stamps data. It is produced for the U.S. Department of Education to use in its allocation formula for funding for Title I and related programs for the low-income.
