Phase I Data

Phase II Data

Baseline estimatesa

6,307

6,375

Number of additional children eligible for WIC through adjunctive eligibility alone

1,333

865

Percentage change in baseline due to including those adjunctively eligible

21%

14%

Number of additional children eligible for WIC if monthly income alone is counted

1,305

1,274

Percentage change in baseline due to including those eligible based on use of a monthly income measure

21%

20%

Number of additional children eligible for WIC through either adjunctive eligibility or monthly income

1,999

1,735

aThe Phase I and Phase II baseline estimates differ Slightly because the income definition used in the Phase I data included the simulated value of food stamps, TANF, and Supplementary Security Income (SSI) received as income. The Phase II data do not include the value food stamps and include reported TANF and SSI income. See text footnote 3. Figures presented in this table do not account for the 6-month certification period for children but instead, assume a year-long certification period.
