This presentation summarizes

some inconsistency problems we have found

generating the imputed income variables

Examples of variables that could be checked

(list of priorities?)

Share data cleaning meeting antwerp february 7 some findings from the

  • Consistency between amount of pension payment & frequency

  • EP078_?? question: typical payment of a pension last year

  • EP074_?? question: period covered by this payment

  • Check the consistency between these 2 variables

  • (e.g. there is a yearly amount & a monthly period)

  • Look at the typical annual amount (payment x frequency):

  • are there values too low/large?

  • Note: the univariate distribution for each variable can be ok !

2) Consistency between final bracket of pension payment and frequency

As before, but regarding the UB’s sequence !

3) Worker and income from work in the previous year

EP005_ : current occupational status  worker

EP204_ : annual income from employment last year

EP206_ : annual income from self-employment last year

About 20% of workers do not have any income

from employment or self-employment !

Probably because of a change in the text of EP204_ question

Many respondents answered in details to the current job questions, providing exact payment amount, frequency of payment, number of months of receiving the payment; they have working continuously since the last interview or the year of starting the job is before 2005

 True workers !

A quick fix was done 2 weeks ago, but

it doesn’t take into account additional payments !

  • Please :

  • check whether the country specific question could have been misunderstood;

  • using all information regarding current job, provide an estimate of the annual income (additional payments?);

  • for respondents who have not worked continuously in the previous year, using information on the spells for this estimate.

  • Be careful to the interviews done in January !

4) Worker and income from work in the previous year (2)

EP005_ : current occupational status  worker

EP204_ : annual income from employment last year

EP206_ : annual income from self-employment last year

Some workers have income from employment

or self-employment, but they report a 0 amount !

EP204_ : cannot be zero  to be imputed

EP206_ : can be zero  look at the numbers
