Abstract (Translated): 
Using data from the Brazilian Census 2000 we estimate whether the distribution of the eligible population of the Continuous Cash Benefit (BPC) would change after a modification in definition of family used to calculate family per capita income. Our results show that in 2000 the majority of eligible individuals would not be affected at all by such modification and no relevant changes in the size of the eligible population are expected.
