Adjusted after-tax income of person not in economic family, category
Adjusted after-tax income refers to after-tax income adjusted by a factor that accounts for family size. The adjustment factor takes into account the lower relative needs of additional family members, as compared to a single person living alone.
Person not in economic family refers to persons who do not live in an economic family. This includes persons who live with people none of whom are related to them either by blood, marriage, common-law or adoption or are their foster parent or child. Persons living alone are always included here.
