Households in the SAM receive transfer payments from Federal and State/Local governments. How are payments classified in the SAM that originate from Federal sources, transfered to states, and finally administered to households through county social services? Are these displayed in the SAM as Federal transfers (based on origin of the dollars) or State/Local transfers (based on delivery of the dollars) to Households? Some source data, such as REIS table C35, do not always distinguish between government sources, such as for supplemental security income (SSI) benefits.
