Components of: a_fihhmngrs_dv gross household income: month before interview
Would it be possible for you to tell me what component variables make up the derived variable in the subject heading? In particular, I am looking for a measure of gross labour income at household level (and at an individual level if possible). Unlike in the BHPS, this data doesn't seem to be available in Understanding Society.
Any help would be appreciated.

Brilliant! Thanks for your help so far.
I am now looking into the income variables at the individual level. With respect to FIMNLABGRS_DV, I see there are negative values present. Are these indicators of missing values or are they negative values generated as a result of the imputation process?
I have the same question in relation to a_seearngrs_dv. However, it is more difficult here as it is plausible that self-employed income can be negative (unlike labour income which must always be positive). How do I distinguish between the true negative values and the indicators for missingness?
