Codes and Frequencies
INCOMEQT reports total household income in approximate quartiles.
Users should note that household incomes were measured based on the income level of the year respondents were surveyed; accordingly, users may want to account for inflation when comparing income across years.
This variable is comparable across years.
Users should note, however, that the 1965-1966 survey sampled persons in households where one person was of working age and employed in an industry other than agriculture. In the 1994 sample, there were only three codes in the original data, and therefore the "second highest" quartile code actually corresponds to the "middle third" of the income distribution.
- All persons.
