Survey Content

This section provides analysts using the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) with an overview of the survey content. SIPP is a longitudinal survey that collects information on topics such as poverty, income, employment, and health insurance coverage. SIPP core content covers demographic characteristics, work experience, earnings, program participation, transfer income, and asset income. Each interview wave contains additional topical content, including one or more topical modules, allowing the Census Bureau to address a range of subjects.1

1 Analysts should consult the actual survey instrument for answers to specific questions about the ordering and wording of survey items. The technical documentation can be ordered separately (Chapter 5 of the SIPP Users' Guide). The SIPP Interviewer Procedures Manual also can be ordered from the Census Bureau.
