2003+: Usual weekly earnings of the respondent's spouse or unmarried partner greater than or equal to $2884.61 are assigned a value of $2884.61.

Description

SPEARNWEEK reports the usual weekly earnings of the respondent's spouse or unmarried partner in dollars.

Weekly earnings (EARNWEEK) are reported at the time of the final CPS interview, 2-5 months before the ATUS interview. Spouse's earnings are not updated at the time of the ATUS interview, though spouse's employment status (SPEMPNOT) is. Therefore, respondents whose spouse or unmarried partner was not in the household at the time of the CPS interview have a value of 99999.98 for SPEARNWEEK because information on spouse's earnings is not available.
