UHRSWORKT_CPS8
Hours usually worked per week (CPS)

UHRSWORKT_CPS8 is a four-digit numeric variable reported in hours.
9995 = Hours Vary
9999 = NIU (Not in Universe)

Description

UHRSWORKT_CPS8 reports the total number of hours the respondent usually works per week at all jobs.

Information on usual hours worked was also collected separately for the respondent's main job (UHRSWORK1_CPS8) and other (second) job (UHRSWORK2_CPS8). UHRSWORKT_CPS8 is the sum of UHRSWORK1_CPS8 and UHRSWORK2_CPS8.

Information on actual hours worked last week was also collected for the respondent's main job (HRSWORK1_CPS8), other job (HRSWORK2_CPS8), and all jobs combined (HRSWORKT_CPS8).

UHRSWORKT_CPS8 was drawn from the final CPS interview, conducted 2-5 months before the ATUS interview. Information on usual hours worked was also collected at the time of the ATUS interview. See UHRSWORK1, UHRSWORK2, and UHRSWORKT.
