Variable Label: Rank how well off now relative to US people


(RB, TOP OF PG 50)

Think of this ladder as representing where people stand in the United States. At the top of the ladder are the people who are the best off - those who have the most money, the most education and the most respected jobs. At the bottom are the people who are the worst off - who have the least money, least education, and the least respected jobs or no job. The higher up you are on the ladder, the closer you are to the people at the very top; the lower you are, the closer you are to the people at the very bottom.

What is the number to the right of the rung where you think you stand at this time in your life, relative to other people in the United States?
