Federal Individual Income Tax Returns--

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 471):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
0469 0479 0480 0481 0482 0483 0484 0485 0486 0487 0559 0628 0629

  1. Constant Dollars were calculated using the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics consumer price
    index for urban consumers (CPI-U, 1982-84=100). See Table 703.
  2. Capital gain distributions are included in net capital gain (less loss). For 1988-1996, and
    1999-2004, capital gain distributions from mutual funds are the sum of the amounts reported
    on the Form 1040 and Schedule D. For 1997 and 1998, capital gain distributions were reported
    entirely on the Schedule D.
