This file also contains data covering noncash income sources such as food stamps, school lunch programs, employer-provided group health insurance, employer-provided pension plans, personal health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, CHAMPUS or military health care, and energy assistance.

Taxes paid include federal and state individual income taxes, property taxes on owner-occupied housing units, Social Security taxes, retirement taxes.
