Hi,

for 1980 income variables, it is stated that while the bottom codes for INCTOT, INCBUS, INCFARM, INCINVST are $-9,900, $9,900 is coded as -09995. So after I got the data on STATA, what I did was convert all -9995s into -9900s. However, even after doing that, as you can see in the picture below, there were still values smaller than -9,900 (or larger in absolute values), which I thought contradicts the bottom code. Should I also consider them as -$9,900 and convert them to -9,900 as well?

Thanks
