In case the amount of interest and dividends was before tax, the net
value was obtained by assuming a 20% tax.
If the exact amount of income from capital or investment or rental
income is not known, the midpoint of approximate range is used as
an approximation; in case of loss, this has been imputed to be equal

In case of rental loss, this has been imputed to be equal to 10,000.
Rental income is estimated after deducting costs such as mortgage,
repairs, maintenance and insurance.

information on gross wages, but as all the extra payments are not
recorded, that variable has not been recorded here.

variable is weak: if a person changes activity status, or if he/she
changes job during year, or if main activity is stated as self-employed,
