Two Years of Poverty Tracker Data are now Available for Download

The CPSP has released two years of Poverty Tracker data collected from 2013 to 2015.  The data comes from 9 surveys administered approximately every 3 months following the baseline survey. The baseline, 12m, and 24m surveys contain repeated follow-up questions that are used to calculate hardship and poverty measures. The other surveys focus on specific topics such as health and well being, service utilization, assets and debt, consumption, work and employment, and immigration.   The data files contain survey data (in STATA, and CSV formats) along with codebooks and surveys.  To protect the confidentiality of respondents, the data has been stripped of any identifying information.

This data is a valuable resource for researchers and policy makers hoping to better understand poverty, hardship, and disadvantage in NYC. It can be accessed here
