From the Introduction: "The U.S. Census Bureau collects data and publishes estimates on income and poverty in order to evaluate national economic trends and to understand their effect on the well-being of households, families, and individuals. This report presents data on income and poverty in the United States based on information collected in the 2021 and earlier Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplements (CPS ASEC) conducted by the Census Bureau. This report provides estimates for calendar year 2020, which coincided with the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, the end of the economic expansion in February 2020, and the recession that began in March 2020 and ended in April 2020."
