Hello IPUMS World,
I’m looking back at data I previously analyzed from the 2017 ACS via IPUMS and I’m finding odd discrepancies between that data and the 2017 ACS data accessed though data.census.gov.
For instance, the 2017 ACS from data.census.gov shows 4,926 people ages 65+ below the poverty line in Rochester, NY.
Via IPUMS (using the poverty variable, ages 65+, and city(5930), it shows 7,798. That’s a pretty large discrepancy (FWIW, outside the margin of error displayed on the Census online table).
Can anyone help me understand the discrepancy?
