For my third "revised" extract, the codebook did not include SAS code for variable INCTOT. Can you provide?

I need the SAS code for the variable INCTOT in order to condense the data in SAS and create new variables. Can you provide me with this code? Thank you!

I just checked into your most recent revised extract and was able to open the data in SAS without any problem. I'm not entirely sure what sort of additional code you are looking for. Was the INCTOT code included in your previous data extracts? In any event, here is a link to a tutorial video about opening IPUMS data files in SAS. Note that the online variable documentation for INCTOT includes information on the specifics of the coding scheme specific sample years.

I hope this helps. Let us know if you have any additional questions.
