Appendix B Recalculation of Relative Importance of Asset Income Data in Section 6.

B for 2000 The tables in this appendix present data from Income of the Population 55 or Older, 2000, revised to reflect changes in the methodology used in Section 6.B of this edition. The effect of this change is negligible for income sources other than asset income. The original tables in the 2000 edition excluded aged units receiving less than 1 percent of total income from asset income for the calculation of the percentages. Aged units with at least one dollar of income from assets are included in the calculations for the tables below. The mean proportions and population counts were unaffected by this change and match those in the original tables in the 2000 edition.
