First, this approach must specify how the burden of each tax is shifted (and can specify more than one outcome, for sensitivity analysis). Then, each scenario is applied to micro-data on households' sources and uses of income. Pechman and Okner (1974) merge data files for a sample of 72 000 households. They use information on demographic characteristics such as age and family size, and tax return items such as income from dividends, interest, rent, capital gains, and wages and salaries. They classify households into annual income groups using a measure of economic income that includes transfers, the household's share of corporate retained earnings, and the imputed net rental income from owner-occupied homes.
