Abstract: This data collection provides monetary value estimates for five types of noncash benefits. These noncash benefits are food stamps, school lunches, public or subsidized rental housing, Medicaid, and Medicare. The three valuation approaches used were market value, recipient or cash equivalent, and poverty budget share. The estimates are based on data obtained from the March 1985 Current Population Survey (CPS).
