Description

Hi,

I have a question about the precise calculation of income variables such as hhnetinc1 (total household net income - no deductions) or prfitb (total personal income). In particular I'd like to know what the individual components are that go into the calculation. I've check the website and the documentation, but I haven't been able to find more information about. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Many thanks,
Andreas

We will be providing more details on the income variables in the user guide to the forthcoming release. Please also note that prfitb is a direct question and not a composite income variable.

Could I please ask whether housing benefit received by the household goes into hhnetinc1?
many thanks,
Laura

Laura,
Yes, housing benefit reported on the income file is included in hhnetinc1. However no allowance is made in hhnetinc1 for the rent rebate/housing benefit reported implicitly in the household questionnaire at questions w_renthb and w_rentg.

Thank you, and I presume that the deductions referred to hhnetinc3 do not include housing benefit?
