Description

CIHFORWK indicates whether or not a person uses a home computer or internet for work related tasks. For all years besides 1997 this question was only asked of persons who were currently employed (See EMPSTAT).

This variable is part of the Computer Internet Supplement.

Comparability

For 1997, 2001 and 2003, this variable asks whether a computer was used to work at home. For 2011, this question asks whether the person relies on the Internet to work from home or to telecommute. For 2013, this question asks whether the person relies on the Internet to telecommute. Thus, answers for 2011 and 2013 are not directly comparable to earlier years.

Researchers should also note the universe changes between samples.
