income variables in Understanding Society
I would like to know what sources of income contain the variables paygu_dv and paynu_dv.
Is it just labor income? Are unemployment benefits taken into account?
There are individuals who are unemployed but have positive income and I would like to understand why it is so.

The income question are routed on jbhas and jboff (sometimes via jbsemp).
In a small number of cases there seems to be some inconsistencies between the same respondent's response to jbhas/jboff and jbstat.
For income questions there would however generally be consistency between jbhas/jboff and the derived income variables.
PS Apologies for taking so long to answer this request. The good news is that we will soon be able to release another wave's worth of data.
