1The national EITC participation rate is 80% (TY2013), estimated in cooperation with the Census Bureau. A major break-through in the study of EITC Participation Rate was accomplished with the estimation of state level participation rates based on the American Community Survey (ACS). While the ACS data does not allow for as precise a determination of EITC eligibility as the Current Population Survey (CPS) data, the state estimates allow interested parties to observe differences in state level taxpayer participation rates. The official estimate is the CPS national estimate of 80% (TY2013), with the ACS estimates as supplementary source of information.
