On May 5th, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) restored detailed estimates on employment, farm income and expenses, and personal current transfer receipts as well as expanded industrial detail for compensation and earning for 108 industries to its Local Area Personal Income (LAPI) program.
The current transfer receipts statistics can be found in the redesigned LAPI table CA35. The redesigned table continues to include major categories such as: Social Security benefits; Medicare benefits; Military medical insurance benefits; Supplemental security income benefits; Supplemental nutrition assistance program benefits; State unemployment insurance compensation; and Veterans benefits.
The CA35 table also includes new detail on the Earned income tax credit. The CA35 table continues to be fully consistent with State tables SA35 and SQ35 which present annual and quarterly State statistics on personal current transfer receipts.
