Poland – PL16 added to LIS

One new dataset from Poland, PL16 (Wave X) has been added to the LIS Database. The dataset is based on the 2016 wave of the Household Budget Survey carried out by Central Statistical Office (GUS).

At the same time, the information on the inclusion of taxes and contribution (stored in variable GROSSNET) was revised in PL13, PL10, PL07, PL04 and PL99, in order to better reflect the fact that only a very small part of income taxes and contributions are captured in the data (only those that are paid by the households, excluding all those withheld at source).

In addition, individual wage data, previously not available for the year 2004, have been restored.
