SOI Releases New Data From Form W-2

October 7, 2013


Newly released W-2 data from the Statistics of Income (SOI) Division of IRS describe in detail the wages and retirement contributions of workers from 2008 through 2010. SOI economists Kevin Pierce and Jon Gober provide an overview of the data and compare them with (much less detailed) data for prior years in an SOI Bulletin article. Three charts illustrate the depth and usefulness of the data.
