Index TermsEmployment: Wages, Salary and Deductions
NoteVariables associated with payments or receipts include two for each, the amount of receipt or payment (here HPAYGL), and the period in weeks which it covered (here HPAYGW). These variables should not be used without first converting to a common time metric (e.g. dividing by number of weeks). You should be aware that for a small number of cases the period of receipt is less than one week. You may wish to take special action in these cases. There are derived Gross pay, net pay, and total income variables toward the end of this Record Type.
