Description

I have a short question regarding the proxy question on annual earnings (Prearna) in the seventh wave of Understanding Society. The question asks for the total earnings before taxes. The respondent is shown a card with twelve different income bands. I would like to find out how the income bands were chosen.

Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

The categories used at W1-2 were taken from British Household Panel Survey Wave 18. The categories were redefined at Wave 3 presumably to better represent the income distribution.

Thanks for the update, Jakob. Do you know what criteria the income bands were designed to satisfy?

That's a fair question, but unfortunately I have not been able to track down the answer yet. Jakob
