This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.
CWREASUNTL indicates whether working only until a project is completed is the reason for a respondent's ended, or ending, employment.
CWREASUNTL, CWREASWRKR, CWREASTIME, and CWREASYEAR are used to identify reasons respondents have temporary jobs. These variables were presented sequentially. Once a respondent positively identified a reason their employment was ending, they were considered NIU for the rest of the sequence. Therefore, each respondent may have only one "Yes" response between these four variables. Other responses may appear in any combination. It is recommended these variables be used in conjunction with one another when analyzing temporary work data.
This variable is part of the Contingent Work Supplement.
