SOI Tax Stats - Individual Information Return Form W-2 Statistics

Back to Tax Stats

This section contains articles and statistical tables on individual income taxpayers with amounts found on Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. The statistical tables provide detailed information about individual wages, tax withholding, elective deferral contributions, and retirement plan participation.

The tables are available in a Microsoft Excel® file. A free Excel viewer is available for download, if needed.

Current statistical tables have been categorized into four main areas:

  • Form W-2: Summary Statistics: This section contains statistical tables on all the items found on Form W-2. The tables also include percentile information for select items on Form W-2.

     

  • Form W-2: Wage Statistics: This section contains statistical tables that focus on individual income taxpayers with wage income. The tables are classified by age, gender, size of wage income, share of total wage income, size of adjusted gross income, return and earner type, and multiples of the Old Age Survivors Disability Insurance (OASDI) wage limit.

     

  • Form W-2: Elective Retirement Contribution Statistics: This section contains statistical tables that focus on individual income taxpayers who made contributions to an elective deferral. The tables are classified by age, gender, size of wage income, size of adjusted gross income, return and earner type, contributions of high and low earners on joint returns, taxpayers making the maximum elective contribution amount, and by the size of the contribution amount.

     

  • Form W-2: Retirement Plan Indicator Statistics: This section contains statistical tables that focus on individual income taxpayers with and without the retirement plan indicator. The tables are classified by size of wage income, size of adjusted gross income, age, return and earner type, and gender.

Each set of tables are included in separate tabs in the file below:
