Egypt - Household Income, Expenditure, and Consumption Survey, HIECS 2015
|Definition|| Including when possible annual amounts of earnings from labor and the contributions paid on them, capital income and property, taxes, social insurance benefits, social assistance benefits and other (private) transfers|
All income variables are recorded as yearly amounts. ERF annualizes the amounts, if not provided as such in original data.
Annual income amounts should be reported in country national currency.
As a rule, household-level income amounts are derived by summing the individual-level values for all individuals in the household. When individual data are not available, reported household amounts are used and these cases will be noted in the country-specific documentation. Where the household income variables are directly calculated from person-level income variables, these formulations are shown below, as are those instances when the variable is created by summing sub-categories within the household data.
A check for outliers is necessary before conducting any analysis on the income data. Extreme cases were detected in the original variables; however the appropriate method to deal with it was left to the user's judgment.
