Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The Derived Current and Annual Net Household Income dataset provides derived net income variables for the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS). It is an unofficial supplement to the set of derived income variables in the official BHPS release (which focus on gross income rather than net income). The purpose of these additional files is to provide an analysis of income and poverty dynamics in Britain, and related topics.

The aim of the research was to produce a longitudinal complement to the cross-section income distribution information provided by the Department of Social Security's (DSS) Households Below Average Income (HBAI) reports, and to this end the HBAI definition of net income (DSS, 1993) has been closely adhered to. Also included in the data are BHPS versions of HBAI family type and economic status variables.

It is recommended that these data are used in conjunction with the main BHPS dataset, held at the UKDA under SN 5151.

The original deposit of this dataset was made in 1999, and contained data from BHPS waves 1-7. Subsequent editions were updated in conjunction with successive waves of BHPS. For the eighth edition (November 2008), new data for Waves 15 and 16 have been added to the study and data for Waves 1–14 and the documentation have been updated. For the ninth edition (April 2012), new data for Waves 17 and 18 have been added and the documentation has been updated accordingly.

Main Topics:
The dataset contains derived variables to accompany BHPS Waves 1-18. Three types of variable are available: estimates of current household net income and annual household net income, and some of their components, together with classifications of persons according to family type and economic status of their family.
