US Coronavirus stimulus checks: How many people will get $1,200 in every state ?

Posted by

The amount each individual receives depends on his or her income and household status. Single adults who had an income of less than $75,000 are eligible for the full $1,200 check. Families and couples who earn below $150,000 will receive a $2,400 check plus an additional $500 per child. The size of the payment decreases for those who have higher incomes. The maximum eligible income is $99,000 for individuals and $198,000 for couples. About 88% of Americans 18 and older earn $75,000 or less annually, so the vast majority of adults who would get the checks will receive the full amount.

The U.S. Treasury Department began on April 10 issuing the first batch of direct deposits to tens of millions of Americans. These checks are part of the massive coronavirus relief bill passed by congress in March to provide emergency financial relief to Americans suddenly facing unemployment or financial insecurity because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Treasury Department determines eligibility for the stimulus check based on individuals’ most recently filed taxes, either 2019 (for those who have filed already) or 2018. People with lower incomes who did not file taxes are still eligible, but they must apply through a web tool set up by the IRS and Treasury Department. 

Using U.S. Census Bureau public use microdata, 24/7 Wall St. calculated the share of adults in each state eligible for the full $1,200 or higher amount. 

The states with higher recipiency rates for the full $1,200 per individual or $2,400 per couple amount are generally lower-income states. Many tend to be states where economic conditions were already poor before the coronavirus crisis. These conditions are only expected to worsen as the economy continues to bear the brunt of the measures taken to slow the spread of COVID-19. These are the U.S. industries being devastated by the coronavirus.

conclusion:

To determine how many people will get $1,200 in every state, 24/7 Wall St. analyzed earnings and household type data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2018 American Community Survey Public Use Microdata Sample. Based on the March 2020 economic impact payment distribution guidelines issued by the Internal Revenue Service, we counted the number of single U.S. citizen householders 18 and over without children who earned $75,000 or less in 2018, the number of householders 18 and over with no spouse present with children who earned $112,5000 or less in 2018, and the number of individuals in married-couple families that earned $150,000 or less in 2018. Those totals were taken as a share of all adults 18 and over with available data to determine the percentage of adults who are eligible for the $1,200 stimulus check.

Data on per capita income and poverty rate are also from the 2018 ACS. Data on the percentage of workers employed in high-risk industries is a 24/7 Wall St. calculation using 2018 annual employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages and identification of high-risk industries from the March 2020 paper “COVID-19: A Fiscal Stimulus Plan” published by Moody’s Analytics, an economics research firm. Data on projected unemployment rate by state for July 2020 came from an April 2020 report published by the Economic Policy Institute, a nonpartisan, nonprofit think tank.
