EMPSAME indicates whether or not the respondent was employed by the same employer and the same job he/she reported working as his/her main job in the previous month's survey.

There are a large number of people in all samples who appear to be in-universe for EMPSAME, that is, they are currently employed and were employed in the previous month, but still have NIU values for EMPSAME. It may be that these individuals did not report the name of their employer in the previous month and are thus not asked this question in the current month. Unfortunately, as employer names are not included in the public use data, there is no way to verify this.
