Instructions for completing 2007 ACS State Tables on

Total Poverty, Child Poverty, Family Poverty, and Median Income.

1) DON'T PANIC! This is easier than you think.


2) To download the 2007 data for your state only (skip to step 3 if you would like data for all 50 states and DC): Go to www.census.gov and click on
"American FactFinder" on the left. Select the "get data" link under "American Community Survey". For the 2007 dataset, click on the "Enter a table number"
link to the right. To get the table for total poverty, enter B17001. Under "Select a geographic type", select "state". Add your state to the "Current geography
selections" field and click on "show result". Repeat these steps to get data for child poverty (B17006), family poverty (B17010), and median income
(B19013). To test changes in total poverty over time, first copy the "estimate" and "margin of error" (M.E.) from the row labeled "Total" . In the
"TotalPoverty" tab of this worksheet, paste the total estimate and its M.E. in columns CD and CE (both highlighted in blue) in the row corresponding to your
state. You must remove the "+/-" symbol in front of the M.E. Return to the census-generated table and copy the estimate for "Income in the past 12 months
below poverty level" and its M.E. Paste these figures into columns CG and CH (highlighted in blue).The spreadsheet will then test if the 2007 poverty figures
are significantly different from rates in all of the previous years shown. Rates that are significantly different from 2007 will have an asterisk in the yellow
columns directly their right. Repeat these steps for child poverty (B17006), family poverty (B17010), and median income (B19013).
3) To download the 2007 data for all 50 States and DC: Go to census.gov and click on "American FactFinder" on the left. Select the "get data" link under
"American Community Survey". Choose 2007 data, detailed tables. Select your state and add tables B17001(total poverty), B17006 (child poverty), B17010
(family poverty), and B19013 (median income). This will show the data, but if you want to download it, you have to click on "print/download". I use the
microsoft excel zip file option.
4) For total poverty and family poverty, you'll need four columns of information, and they'll probably be the first four after the name of your state. They
should be total number of families/individuals, its margin of error, and number of families/individuals in poverty along with its margin of error. This is all you
need— you can ignore the other columns for now.
5) For child poverty, you'll also need the first four columns of data— "Related Children Under 18" and it's "margin of error", and "related children under 18,
income below the poverty line" and its associated "margin of error".
6) For median income, you only need two columns of data— "median household income in last 12 months" and the associated "margin of error".
7) Enter or copy and paste this data into the appropriate BLUE columns in the following worksheets. Note: you MUST fill in ALL of the blue columns for the
results to be accurate. Once you've filled in the blue columns, the YELLOW columns will tell you if the 2007 median income, total poverty rate, child poverty
rate, or family poverty rate, is statistically different from those in previous years. That is, if the yellow column contains an asterisk (*), then there has been a
statistically significant change in that variable between that particular year and 2007. If the YELLOW column is blank, the rate or median is not statistically
different from 2007.

Note: Beginning in 2006 the Census Bureau adopted a major methodology change. Census staff warn that this change especially affects short-term
comparisons between years immediately before and after the 2006 change. Because of this, data for years 2004 and 2005 have been hidden to prevent
unreliable comparisons with 2006 and 2007.

You will also be able access county-level data for 2007 for your state from the Census website. Simply follow the same instructions for downloading state
data, but select "county" in the pull-down menu, then select your state in the next pull-down menu, and choose the county (or counties) you're interested in.
