The scale values shown here are percentages to be applied to the total cost of a budget (excluding State and local income taxes, and disability payments) for the base family (4 persons-husband, age 35-54, wife, 2 children, oldest child 6-15 years) to estimate the total income required to provide the same level of living for urban families of different size, age, and composition. In addition to the cost of goods and services for family consumption, the total budget costs include gifts and contributions, life insurance, occupational expenses, employee contribution for social security, and federal income taxes. Estimates of personal taxes paid to State and local governments and of payments for disability insurance may be added in those urban areas where applicable.
