Survey of Income and Program Participation Core
and Disability Modules, 1992/1993
The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) is a large panel study of civilian non-institutionalized U.S. citizens. Conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, SIPP provides detailed income and other economic resource distribution information for the U.S. population. Using these data, program analysts, policy makers, or other researchers can then predict assistance program eligibility rates. The survey focuses primarily on improving data on people who are economically at risk: poor or near-poor people and middle-income people who, if they lost a spouse, parent or job, would likely experience economic deprivation and might then require federal assistance. Secondary to this core set of information, SIPP adds question modules about a variety of policy related topics. This user's guide pertains to SIPP's overlapping cross-sectional core data and modules on disability from the 1992 and 1993 panels. The Survey of Income and Program Participation, Core and Disability Modules, 1992-1993 contains data on 98,395 cases across 1,494 variables.
