Description

For persons who received income from any retirement or survivor pension other than Social Security, Railroad Retirement, or a disability pension last month, INCRETIR indicates the amount that the person received from other pensions in the last calendar month.

In 1993, this question was only asked of persons who were interviewed in quarters 3 and 4.

 

INCRETIR is part of the Family Resources supplement that provides information on individuals' health benefits, amount of coverage and income received from employment, welfare benefits, public assistance, and savings.

Questions in the Family Resources supplement are different from those in the core survey in terms of the content and the treatment of missing data. Questions in the Family Resources were normally asked of the month prior to the interview while the core survey asked of the last calendar year. All missing data in the Family Resources supplement were imputed by NHIS. Users can refer to the imputation flag variable QINCRETI to identify persons with imputed data.

Comparability

Changes in the universe in 1993 affect the raw frequency but should not affect the comparability of this variable. As always, users should use the appropriate weight for their analyses.
