Description

DWCLASS reports the class of worker for the job the respondent lost or left within the last several years.

This variable is part of the Displaced Workers Supplement.

Users should note that for less than one hundred cases in the 1996 and 1998 samples, this variable should be NIU yet still has a valid response. There is no documentation to explain why these cases occur, but they occur in the original data.

Comparability

From 1984-1992, respondents who lost or left a job during the past five years are included in the supplement; from 1994 on, those who lost or left a job during the past three years are included.
