FOTHINC
Other income of other family members

Description

FOTHINC reports the total "other" money income, for the previous calendar year, of all age 14+ members of the household head's family, excluding the household head. (The household head's income from "other" sources is reported in the person-record variable INCOTHER.) "Other" excludes income sources contained in FWAGE2 and FBUSINC: wages, salaries, and income from businesses, professional practices, and farms.

FOTHINC does not include other income of family members who were part of the household during the previous calendar year but who were no longer present by census time.

Codes

This variable is only available for 1950. FOTHINC is a 5-digit numeric code which reports the previous calendar year's total "other" money income of all age 14+ members of the household head's family, excluding the household head (The household head's income from "other" sources is reported in the person-record variable INCOTHER). "Other" excludes income sources contained in FWAGE2 and FBUSINC: wages, salaries, and income from businesses, professional practices, and farms. FOTHINC does not include other income of family members who were part of the household during the previous calendar year but who were no longer present by census time. FOTHINC specific variable codes for missing, edited, or unidentified observations, observations not applicable (N/A), observations not in universe (NIU), top and bottom value coding, etc. are provided below by Census year (and data sample if specified).

FOTHINC Specific Variable Codes
10000 = $10,000 or more (Topcode)
99998 = not ascertained
99999 = N/A

Comparability

This variable is only available for 1950. Only in that year did the census gather information on business and farm income for a collective group-the relatives of the household head-rather than for each person individually. FOTHINC is one of the components of total family income, which is given for 1950 and subsequent years in FTOTINC (see the FTOTINC variable description for more discussion).

User note: FOTHINC is only available for households with sample-line heads. Researchers must apply the person-record variable SLWT (sample-line weight) to produce representative statistics for FOTHINC.

Universe

  • Primary family members (except for head) in households where the sample-line person was the household head.
