FWAGE2
Wage/salary income of other family members

Description

FWAGE2 reports the total pre-tax wage and salary 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 wage and salary income is reported in the person-record variable INCWAGE.)

FWAGE2 does not include wage and salary 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

FWAGE2 is a 5-digit numeric code which reports the previous calendar year's total pre-tax wage and salary income of all age 14+ members of the household head's family, excluding the household head (The household head's wage and salary income is reported in the person-record variable INCWAGE). FWAGE2 does not include wage and salary income of family members who were part of the household during the previous calendar year but who were no longer present by census time.

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 each household head-rather than for each person individually. FWAGE2 is one of the components of total family income, which is given for 1950 and subsequent years in FTOTINC (see the variable description for FTOTINC for further discussion.)

User note:
FWAGE2 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 FWAGE2.

Universe

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