UHRSWORK1 is a three-digit numeric variable reported in hours.
995 = Hours Vary
999 = NIU (Not in Universe)
UHRSWORK1 reports the number of hours the respondent usually works per week at his/her main job. This variable is topcoded at 99 hours per week.
UHRSWORK1 was collected at the time of the ATUS interview. However, information on hours worked was only collected at that time for respondents who changed jobs or employers since the final CPS interview, or whose earnings were allocated in the final CPS interview. For other respondents, information on hours worked was carried forward from the final CPS interview. CPSUPDATE may be useful as an indication that this information may be out of date.
- Employed ATUS respondents.
