We expect to find that the omnibus income amount tends to be lower and under-reported when compared to the aggregated income amount (Moeller and Mathiowetz 1994).
The first level is the whether the aggregated income amount falls within the same income category the respondent provides on the omnibus income item (the response values for the omnibus income item are provided in Figure 1); the second level is if the aggregated income amount is one or more lower than the omnibus income category; and the third level is if the aggregated income amount is one or more higher than the omnibus category.
This is done to test whether any mismatch of income amount is because of the Census Bureau's imputation process.
These indicators are included to determine whether the mismatch between the omnibus income item and the aggregated income amount could be attributed to respondents consistently missing or overcounting particular sources of aggregated income in the omnibus income item.
We then employ two different methodologies to evaluate the mismatch between the omnibus income amount and the aggregated income amount.
