Hi,

I wonder if there is a consensus on how one deals with survey data where one individual was asked - besides a lot of other things - about the household income and the number of individuals in that household (including roomers). Now I think I somehow got to adjust income as it obviously depends whether one can use 5000$ for one, two or three people. On the other side I wonder how individuals responded to the household income question when they were just sharing a flat with friends. But, there might be some consensus on that topic? So, is there a good way to adjust household income?

Many thanks for your consideration,

Andrea
