SCC_OWNNHH_LN is a 4-digit numeric variable reported in minutes. Values for ATUS respondents range from 0 to 1440 minutes.
SCC_OWNNHH_LN reports the number of minutes during the associated activity that the respondent reported engaging in secondary childcare of own, non-household children under the age of 13.
Secondary childcare of 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), or directly related to the care of non-household children (0401xx, 0402xx, 0403xx, 180401, 180402, 180403, 180404).
For each respondent, all values of SCC_OWNNHH_LN are summed to create SCC_OWNNHH.
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_OWNNHH_LN will not be included in your extract, as persons are the unit of observation for rectangular extracts rather than activity or who records.
