2nd Release

This variable is calculated by summing the individual incomes reported by all family members aged 15 years and over (Negative Income is treated as no income). If any family member aged 15 years and over did not state their income, or were temporarily absent Family Income is not calculated. These families fall into the Partial income stated category. Annual income ranges are displayed within brackets.

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