Hi everyone. Apologies is this isn’t quite an IPUMS question, but I’m curious if the US Census provides income / poverty estimates at the census tract and census place level in the 2010 and 2020 Decennial Census. From looking around IPUMS and the US Census sites, it seems like they stopped collecting (or more likely making it publicly available) after the 2000 Decennial?
I know the 5-year ACS figures are available, but my committee and I are slightly skeptical of using those estimates as a point-in-time annual estimate, given that it’s a collection of different years. I was instead going to try “downcasting” from the PUMA level, but was hoping I could check against 2010 and 2020 census tract figures.
Any insight on this would be most appreciated.
