NOTES: The 2011 American Community Survey serves as the base data for these estimates. These estimates capture program effects on overall California Poverty Measure rates. Benefits from programs such as social security, unemployment insurance, and veterans’ benefits are included in our totals, but are not isolated for their individual effects.
