INCASIST indicates how much pre-tax income (if any) the respondent received during the previous calendar year from regular financial assistance from friends or relatives not living in the same household.
Amounts are expressed as they were reported to the interviewer; users must adjust for inflation using Consumer Price Index adjustment factors.
Apart from the effect of inflation, this variable is consistent for 1988 forward.
Comparability with IPUMS-USA
In IPUMS-USA, income from financial assistance provided by non-co-resident friends and relatives is not tallied separately and was included in the residual INCOTHER (other income) variable.
- Persons age 15+.
