I am looking to find the number of families below a certain income threshold in my state.
If FTOTINC represents individual family income, then how come there is a weighted household variable (HHWT) in the same column representing multiple households (ex. 17)? Is FTOTINC a median or aggregate income of multiple families (seems oddly specific to be)?
My approach is to find number of family households using HHTYPE (1-3), then use HHWT to count the number of families in each sample that are below a certain income (using the FTOTINC value associated with each HHWT).
Thank you for any information you might have!
