In the last week, total number of hours telework or work at home for pay


This is a 3-digit numeric variable.


TELWRKHR indicates how many total hours employed respondents 16 years or older teleworked or worked from home for pay (TELWRKPAY) in the last week. This question was not asked to people who were employed, but not currently working due to vacation, illness, or other reasons. For respondents who hold multiple jobs, this question does not separately identify which one. For respondents that are not in universe (NIU), they were coded as 999.
