Description

SALARY provides the respondent's salary for the principal job. Respondents are asked to report their basic annual salary, excluding deductions, bonuses, overtime or additional compensation for summertime teaching or research. If the respondent is not salaried, they are asked to provide an estimate of their annual earned income, excluding business expenses.

SESTAT-NSCG and NSRCG: top coded at 100,000 current U.S. dollars.
