FAMINCOME IN ATUS?

From the online definition, I can't tell if FAMINCOME in the ATUS is family income or household income--can you clarify which would be the better way to describe it?

This is a good question and should be clarified in the online documentation. This variable actually comes directly from the CPS and relates to the FAMINC variable. Since the variable is a household level variable, it is the same for all members of the same housing unit. However, the value of this variable relates to the "family" or those who are related to the household head.
