Over the past couple of years, the U.S. Census Bureau has been increasing administrative records use. This expansion is due largely to recent file acquisitions and several important methodological breakthroughs. This paper will discuss both the third-party files that substantially improved administrative records content and changes in approaches to processing and modeling that have likewise facilitated expansion. Important acquisitions include the Social Security Administration's Supplemental Security Income File and the United States Postal Service's National Change of Address File. Improvements in processing and modeling methods include reducing dependency on IRS information, converting a C-based record linkage software application to SAS, improving geographic capability, and developing models for use in federal poverty program analysis.
