United States 2013 revised

The US13 dataset (Wave IX) was re-harmonised on the basis of the recently re-released original data; the US Census Bureau corrected the 2014 ASEC data files, which are based on the Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC) of the Current Population Survey (CPS), to accommodate an additional tax bracket into 2014 tax model.

This impacted the tax data (and hence the disposable household income) of households at the very top of the income distribution (about 0.5% of the households in the sample).

See Revision Notes for additional information.

A series of minor revisions

Several datasets underwent minor revisions:

  • CA97 / PL86: variable RELATION contained a mixed code (in the 4000 category) which included also children that could not be reported separately. For clarity these observations were set to missing.
  • AU81: code 90/9 of variables OCCB1/OCCA1 has been added to separate indistinguishable cases from true missings.
  • PL95: variable STATUS1 has been considerably revised.
  • CA04 / 00 / 98: an error was corrected in variable INDA1; as a result, several missing cases have now been recovered and the variable is complete.
  • CZ96: a group of persons was recoded from employed to not employed in CLFS and EMP variables.
