Description

WHYPTLY reports the reason why respondents worked part-time (less than 35 hours) for at least one week during the previous calendar year. Some of these individuals normally worked a part-time job; others usually worked full-time but worked less than 35 hours for some weeks (e.g., because of slack work or a shortage of materials). Paid time off due to vacations, holidays, or sick leave did not count.
