"TOTAL NET FAMILY INCOME" and "TOTAL NET FAMILY ASSETS" Variables Updated [Most Recent Errata, posted 8/16/2017]

New summation variables--TOTAL NET FAMILY INCOME and TOTAL NET FAMILY ASSETS--have been constructed for the NLS Older Men's Cohort. This was done to correct inconsistencies across rounds in the treatment of noninterviewed respondents. Excel tables of these updated variables are available to users in the zip file Older Men Income and Assets Variables. This information will be included in NLS Investigator following the next data update of the Older Men.
