Income / SES indicators?

I see a variable in Wave 2 for household income, but not in wave 1 - anyone else come across this? I am just looking for an indicator of SES in general... but struggling to find one. Can anyone give me a hand?

Hello! First of all, I'm so

Hello! First of all, I'm so sorry for the delay in getting to your question.

Second, there should be a variable in the Wave 1 Adult Restricted-Use file, "R01_AM0030," for the "total household income in the past 12 months." The household income variable in the Public-Use file has the same name.

I hope this helps!
