SCC_NOWNNHH_LN is a 4-digit numeric variable reported in minutes. Values for ATUS respondents range from 0 to 1440 minutes. Members of the dataset who are not ATUS respondents are assigned a value of 99999 = NIU (Not in universe).
SCC_NOWNNHH_LN reports the number of minutes during the associated activity that the respondent reported engaging in secondary childcare of non-own, non-household children under the age of 13.
Secondary childcare of non-own, non-household children is not recorded if the respondent's main activity is sleeping (0101xx), directly related to the care of household children (0301xx, 0301xx, 0303xx, 180301, 180302, 180303, or 180304), except in 2003, or directly related to the care of non-household children (0401xx, 0402xx, 0403xx, 180401, 180402, 180403, 180404).
For each respondent, all values of SCC_NOWNNHH_LN are summed to create SCC_NOWNNHH.
This variable is available via extracts that are hierarchical or rectangular (activity) (more info on extract formats). If you request a hierarchical extract and plan to construct time use variables in your statistics package, this variable may be useful to you. If you request a rectangular extract and plan to construct time use variables through the extract system, SCC_NOWNNHH_LN will not be included in your extract, as persons are the unit of observation for rectangular extracts rather than activity or who records.
In 2003, data on secondary care of non-own, non-household children could have been collected if the respondent's main activity was directly related to the care of household children. From 2003 on, secondary care of non-own, non-household children was not collected if the respondent's main activity was care of household children.
