PAIDEMP1 reports if the self-employed respondent has paid employees in their first job.


In all available samples the empirical universe for PAIDEMP1 differs from the stated universe in the codebooks. All respondents are from month-in-samples 4 and 8, rather than 3 and 4 as stated in the documentation. In samples from January 2020 through January 2021, persons classed as "incorporated self-employed" are not included in PAIDEMP1.


  • Jan 2014 - Dec 2019, Feb 2021+: Self-employed persons with MISH 4 or 8
  • Jan 2020 - Jan 2021: Unincorporated self-employed persons with MISH 4 or 8
