A new dataset from the Central Bureau of Statistics
605. Income Survey 2005
Source: Israel Central Bureau of Statistics
The Income Survey plays a crucial role in estimating income levels and
inequality among various population groups. Since 1997, the Central Bureau
of Statistics has been producing a series of income estimates based on a
mixed dataset derived from Incomes and Household Expenditure
Surveys; both of which are now using similar definitions and estimation
system. The dataset consists of two files: A household file (N=14,54): details
household composition, number of providers, and incomes from work, from
allowances and from other sources. An individual file for household members
aged 15+ (N=34,988): portrays a detailed demographic profile, labor force
characteristics, wages, and personal incomes from various sources. Since the
2003 dataset, codes of localities appear only for localities with more than
20,000 residents. The dataset is available with SAS, STATA, or SPSS data
A detailed description of the dataset is available in the ALEPH catalogue as
well as in the new DDI
test version catalog.
Please send your comments and suggestions to the new catalog to
Eyal Nahum or to Hagai Dror.
