INCOME GUIDELINES OVERVIEW
The January 2018 income guidelines are calculated by taking the 2016 Census Bureau’s poverty thresholds and adjusting them for price changes between 2016 and 2017 using the Consumer Price Index (CPI-U). The income thresholds used by the Census Bureau for statistical purposes are complex and are not composed of standardized increments between family sizes. Since many program officials prefer to use guidelines with uniform increments across family sizes, the income guidelines include rounding and standardizing adjustments in the formula.
