Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP)
Investigators: United States Census Bureau

The main objective of the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) is to provide accurate and comprehensive information about income and program participation of individuals and households in the United States, and about the principal determinants of income and program participation. SIPP offers detailed information on cash and noncash income on a sub annual basis. The survey also collects data on taxes, assets, liabilities, and participation in government transfer programs. SIPP data allow the government to evaluate the effectiveness of federal, state, and local programs.

The Children's Well-Being Topical Module data set contains 159 variables and 73,257 cases. It contains certain identification variables as well as selected background (demographic) characteristics. The module asks the designated parent or guardian about the health of children in the household, care of the child by nonfamily members, activities the family does with the children (such as reading and outings), lessons and activities outside the school, rules for children's TV viewing, and the respondent's opinion about the quality of the neighborhood. The module obtains information about children in three age groups: under 6 years old, ages 6-11 and ages 12-17 for as many as seven children in each category.

SIPP core data covers a variety of topics, including labor force status and employment, earnings, business ownership, assets, income, program participation, child support collection, health insurance, and education. The core data for the 1996 SIPP panel are arranged in a person-month format, with up to four records for each sample member. Each record contains data from one of the four reference months covered by the wave. This data set contains core data collected during month four (March 2000) of the 1996 panel, which consists of 931 variables and 73,257 cases.
