This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.
CWTYCOCTR indicates whether the individual was a company contract worker. Note that independent contractors are those who work for a contract company (see CWCONTRACT), usually work for only one customer, and usually work at the customer's worksite. This refers to individuals who are employed by firms who contract out their workers or their workers' services, rather than all workers employed by firms that provide services under contract, such as advertising agencies and law firms.
This variable is one of four that defines alternative employment arrangements. Alternative employment arrangements are determined by the workers' relationship to their employer. The four alternative work arrangements available in this supplement include CWTYTEMP, CWTYINCTR, CWTYCOCTR, and CWTYCALLDAY.
This variable is part of the Contingent Work Supplement.
