Current Population Survey, March 1984: After-tax Money Income Estimates (ICPSR 8470)

Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census


This version of the March 1984 Current Population Survey is modified to include estimated taxes paid and after-tax money income. Estimated taxes include Federal and State individual income taxes, property taxes on owner-occupied housing units, Social Security taxes, and retirement taxes. In addition to the usual monthly labor force data found in Current Population Survey files, supplemental data are provided on work experience, types and amounts of "before tax" money income, noncash income sources, and migration. Demographic characteristics such as age, sex, race, household relationship, and Spanish origin are included for every person in the households surveyed.
