Support the SIPP
The Budget of the United States Government for FY07 does not include funding for the Census Bureau's Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). According to a fact sheet created by the Center for Economic Policy Research, "the SIPP is the only large-scale survey that provides information about the effectiveness of welfare reform, Medicaid, unemployment insurance and other income-support programs".
The CEPR has a sign-on Letter to researchers who are concerned about access to this data.
More information on the SIPP can be found from the Census Bureau website.
