[1] Reflects changes made to data as part of the 2003 Comprehensive

Revision of the National Income and Product Accounts (NIPAs). For

details of this revision, see the Bureau of Economic Analysis Web

site at http.//www.bea.gov/bea/dn/2003benchmark/CR2003rontent.htm.

[2] Data for years 1987 and after are not comparable to pre-1987

data because of major changes in the definition of “adjusted gross

income” (AGI).

NOTES: Detail may not add to totals because of rounding.

All amounts are in current dollars. Most of the data are

subject to sampling error. Tax law and tax form changes

affect the year-to-year comparability of the data.

Percentages shown in this table are based on dollar

amounts rounded to the units indicated in the specific

table heading. Therefore, they may not be as precise as

percentages based on the fuller dollar amounts found in

tables contained in the source publications or articles

which underlie the historical tables presented in this

section of the Bulletin.

SOURCE: Data on “personal income” and “adjusted gross

income” (AGI) (per NIPAs) are from U.S. Department of

Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis, National Income

and Product Accounts (NIPAs), Table 7.19. Comparison of

Personal Income in the National Income and Product

Accounts with Adjusted Gross Income as Published by the

Internal Revenue Service. This table appears periodically

in the Survey of Current Business and can also be accessed

online at: http://www.bea.gov/bea/dn/nipaweb/index.asp.

Data on “adjusted gross income” (AGI) (per SOI) in Table 6

are from Statistics of Income-Individual Income Tax Returns,

appropriate years.
