CWREASYEAR
Job is seasonal

Codes

This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.

Description

CWREASYEAR indicates whether having a seasonal job is the reason for a respondent's ended, or ending, employment.

CWREASYEAR was only asked of workers who were temporary (CWTEMP), could not have stayed in their job from last week (CWCONTOLD), or could not continue in their current job (CWCONTCUR).

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.
