description:
This data collection supplies standard monthly labor force data for the week prior to the survey. Comprehensive information is given on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 14 years old and older. Additional data are available concerning weeks worked and hours per week worked, reason not working full-time, total income and income components, and residence. Besides the CPS core questions, this survey gathered additional data on respondents' premium pay, number of days and hours per week usually worked, whether they worked a shift or flextime schedule, time of day that workers started and ended work, and union membership status. Supplemental questions on multiple job holding were asked of one-fourth of sample households. Questions asked of dual job-holders include the reason for working at a second job, the number of hours worked at this job, and whether they were on layoff from their primary job. Statistics on adult education participation by persons aged 16 years and older are also provided. For each course taken, data are included on subject area, reason for taking the course, amount paid for the course, and source of payment. Information on demographic characteristics, such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, household relationship, educational level, and Hispanic origin, is available for each person in the household enumerated.
