For 2000, the main variable used to create INCORIG is v258. However, there are missing cases, so we use the variable v672 as additional information. v672 covers income ranges, so we have to recode the variable according to the midpoint of the range.

For 2005, the main variable used to create INCORIG is "inkomen". There are cases where the value is "-3" to refer to observations where information regarding income is "weet niet" (not reported). The rest of the missing cases are coded as -8.
