Calcuation of net income variables
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.

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.
