Total family income, last year (top coded)


FAMTOTINC is a 6-digit variable:

220000: $220,000 or more (2019)
250000: $250,000 or more (2020-forward)


For sample adults and sample children, FAMTOTINC reports the respondent's best estimate of the total income of all family members before taxes in the year prior to the current year. If the sample adult and sample child are from the same family, the information is collected in whichever interview occurs first and is copied to an identical variable for the other sampled family member in a post-processing step (i.e., if the sample child interview occurs first, the family-level information is later replicated on the sample adult file). For more information on how the 2019 redesign impacted data collection, please see the user note. IMPINCFAM indicates if the family income was imputed and QTCINCFAM indicates if the income was top-coded.


Apart from changes in topcodes, this variable is completely comparable over time.
