SEXW

Description

SEXW reports the sex of the person with whom the activity was done. This variable is only available for ATUS respondent household members.

SEXW is available only if you select a hierarchical extract. 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, SEXW will not be included in your extract, as persons are the unit of observation for rectangular extracts rather than activity or who records.
