Census Income Standard Error


A researcher is working with a 2006 Census Topic based tabulation, no 97-563-xcb2006072 , the second title on the list contains the variable: “Standard error of average after-tax income $”. This particular file is for “Total – Population 15 years and over”. Is there a similar variable anywhere that is associated with family and/or household income?


For 2006, most of the larger “income group” variables included Standard Error, for example Family income groups (22) – as seen here: < LANG=E&APATH=3&DETAIL=1&DIM=0&FL =A&FREE=0&GC=0&GID=0&GK=0&GRP=1&PID=94193&PRID=0&PTYPE=88971,97154&S=0&SHOWALL=0&SUB=0&Temporal=2006&THEME=81&VID=0&VNAMEE=&VNAMEF>
