               income amounts for 5 main aggregated categories:

               Taxes and contributions are not asked in GSOEP, but are simulated

               within the household.

               The imputed rent was calculated by the data provider following the

               owner-occupiers, and individuals living in households with reduced rent or
               rent-free, all owner related costs are deducted (including operating and

               taxes), while only only costs for heating and water costs are deduced for
               other households.

               Taxes and contributions are not asked in GSOEP, but are simulated
               (Johannes Schwarze routine). Ttaxes are estimated for each tax unit within
