Marginal tax rate (imputed from total taxable income) - 2002-2003

Unicon Corporation made the following notes about this variable:
The value of this variable is withheld by the Census in the fall ASEC release of the most current file. In winter, the Census will issue a revised file with the value included. Unicon will replace the fall release with the winter release as soon it becomes available. See 'news' section of the Unicon website. For a discussion on tax and benefit variables, refer to Census paper P60-186RD, 'Measuring the Effect of Benefits and Taxes on Income and Poverty: 1992'. This paper can be accessed from CPS Utilities by clicking on the button 'Census Paper: Benefits and Taxes' on the screen with documentation specific to the Annual Social and Economic Supplement (March) survey. This variable first appears on the CPS file in 1991. However, noncash benefits data for the earlier years were made available on-line from the Census. Unicon merged the extra data onto the original data using the following match variables: 1980-1987 hhid, fampos, perid 1988B-1990 hhid, famposo, perido Unfortunately, it is not possible to create the famposo and perido variables for 1988 (per Census Bureau, 12/95), therefore the additional data file for this year was only prepared for the 1988 bridge file.
