According to the Comparability Tab under INCTOT (Total personal income), it is indicated that INCTOT (total personal income) is the sum of INCWAGE (wage and salary income), INCBUSFM (business and farm income), and INCOTHER (other income). (https://usa.ipums.org/usa-action/vari…) However, as you can see:
On the fourth line, INCTOT = 350, INCWAGE = 0, INCBUSFM = 250, and INCOTHER = 150, which doesn’t make sense as 350 ≠ 250 + 150.
There were several similar cases, which caused issues when I was calculating ratios such as (INCWAGE/INCTOT, INCBUSFM/INCTOT, INCOTHER/INCTOT), and the ratios exceeded 1 (or 100%).
Is this just the technical issue? Or am I understanding something wrong?
Thanks for your help.
