Italy 2016 added to the LWS Database

One new dataset from Italy, IT16 (Wave X) has been added to the LWS Database.

The dataset is derived from the 2016 wave of the Survey of Household Income and Wealth (SHIW), carried out by the Bank of Italy.

Note that the SHIW data are used for the creation of the Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS) data of the European Central Bank (ECB). However, LIS has used the original SHIW data to create the LWS dataset.

In addition, the provision of more detailed variables for taxes and social contributions (as simulated by the Bank of Italy) allowed the addition of taxes and contributions to all labour income and pension variables in IT14; as a result, income variables are now reported gross rather than net and variable grossnet has been revised accordingly.
Variable bocd1_c (constraints in debt repayment) is now available in IT08, IT10, and IT14.
