* We are currently evaluating the adequacy of the March Supplement of the Current Population Survey (CPS), which is the data source for these publications. Recent research suggests that there may be significant issues with the measurement of some sources of income reported in the CPS. As a federal statistical agency, we are dedicated to publishing the most accurate statistics possible so we are conducting a thorough review of available data sources for these publications. ORES will publish findings from this review. For more information, see Bee, Adam and Joshua W. Mitchell. 2017. “Do Older Americans Have More Income Than We Think?” SESHD Working Paper No. 2017-39. Washington, DC: U.S. Census Bureau.
