2nd Release

Household Income is derived by summing the individual incomes reported by all household members (Negative Income is treated as no income). If any household member aged 15 years and over did not state their income, or were temporarily absent Household Income is not calculated. These families fall into the Partial Income Stated category. Annual income ranges are included in brackets.

If there is a need to recalculate this variable under different circumstances users can use the derived variable Household Income Derivation Indicator (HIDD) in conjunction with Individual Income (INCP) to create a new household income variable.
