description:
The objectives of this survey were to obtain information on the main and second jobs of paid workers related to: work schedule (days of week, hours of work); amount of control over schedule (on call flexible schedules); number of home-based workers and reasons for home-based work; number of moonlighters and reasons for having another job; pay, overtime, unionization. Additionally, the 1995 survey gathered information not collected by the previous survey on: firm size, employee benefits, unpaid overtime and preference for fewer or more hours of work. In order to allow for comparability with the redesigned LFS (to be fully implemented by January 1997) the 1995 SWA used, whenever applicable, the new LFS questions. Consequently, in a few instances this has somewhat limited comparability with the 1991 SWA. For the self-employed who were not part of the 1991 survey, the 1995 SWA provides information on the days of the week they work, number of employees the business had in the reference week, home-based work, and reasons for self-employment. This survey is conducted as supplement to the Labour Force Survey (LFS).
