RT @GBurtless: (3/3) A lot of income is missed by Census Bur, including income used to pay for personal consumption, but it's in GDP http://t.co/HAxIybp2zW
RT @GBurtless: (2/3) Household size has shrunk since 1993; Census Bur. deflates income using different price index than used for GDP http://t.co/BOiWJVCXpZ
RT @GBurtless: (1/3) Median income has grown more slowly than GDP per capita, but @Neil_Irwin exaggerates significance of gap. http://t.co/kb3gb4UTLS
@ernietedeschi see http://t.co/lukDtFhuDi
@ernietedeschi @BLS_gov @uscensusbureau they use CPI-U-RS, but trend identical to CPI-U after 1998. C-CPI diff from both (& started '99)
That moment you realize the dry cleaner tore a sizable hole in the crotch of the suit pants you hurriedly left the house in.
If @BLS_gov computes CPI & chained CPI, & says chained CPI is best, why should @uscensusbureau base 2000-13 trends off of CPI.They're wrong.
Hey @uscensusbureau , why not show income trends using chained CPI back to 2000? @BLS_gov says it's closer to cost-of-living index than CPI
@ReaHedermanJr @salimfurth they’ve shown themselves untrustworthy on inequality. Think state taxes have risen but fed taxes have fallen more
@salimfurth and decline in taxes…
Measured correctly, median income is higher than in 1999. And probably was even in 2009. http://t.co/eY6s6oaoEv
Using PCE deflator and official figures, median was $1,900 lower in 2013 than 1999. Then there’s aging of pop, health insurance, etc.
Median hh income is NOT $5,000 lower than 1999. It’s just not. CPI overstates inflation. CBO, Fed, BLS prefer PCE deflator.
Here’s the last sky-not-falling review of income trends you’ll read today, as new income & poverty figures come out http://t.co/BlG4kw3wVP
@ARossP QuickType is going to take some getting used to.
RT @BrookingsCCF: WIC calls #breastfeeding the "optimal infant feeding choice," yet it's the world's largest single provider of formula http://t.co/yZCkZNl6vT
@WilcoxNMP shots fired! :)
@Claudia_Sahm true, but for some of us, the issue is we’re unwilling to put out easily- & rightly-critiqued stuff. Everyone shld write less
.@MichaelSLinden @GreensteinCBPP will respond & if anything’s misleading, will retract. Don’t think it’ll be necessary.
@JRussellMI it will certainly put you in good stead with The Committee. Unless they all say, “All work and no play make Jason a dull boy”
