NOTE: Income percentile categories were constructed from NES survey data
for family income. For each study year, the survey variable's original
codes describing income ranges, was approximated as closely as
possible to fit within this percentage group version. Note that prior
to 1972, an estimate of the current year's income was given by the
respondent; in all later years, the respondent's estimate of income
was for previous year.

2012 data are for the combined (face-to-face and internet) sample.

This question is variable VCF0114 in the ANES Cumulative Data File dataset.
