Variable for Income

I have an enquiry about a variable that I am trying to find. I need a derived variable for the Waves 7-10 that specifies an individuals income annually or a households income annually. I have searched extensively, using the index page as well, but have been unsuccessful in finding any variable that didn't have numerous contestants answers omitted or not applicable and therefore not usable. I need a variable that breaks down the income into either brackets or numerical amounts and doesn't just specify the average or min and max.

At one point I did find a variable that broke income into classes (eg. Lowest income group, Low-middle income group, Upper-middle income group, and Highest income group) but I am unable to find it again.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Emily Calnan

Dear Emily,

Have you looked at the Income section in the User Guide? It describes the income variables that are provided, what income is imputed, for whom is it missing etc. Here is the link

If you don't find the information you need here please let us know.
