WKSWORKORG is a 2-digit numeric value.
0 = NIU (Not In Universe)
98 = Don't Know
WKSWORKORG reports the number of weeks, in single weeks, that the respondent usually works per year. WKSWORKORG is one of the earner study questions, which is also known as the outgoing rotation group questions. Private wage or salaried workers are asked the periodicity for which they are paid. Workers who are paid annually, excluding those who are self-employed, are asked how many weeks a year they are paid for. Researchers should use the EARNWT weight with this variable.
WKSWORKORG is one of the Outgoing Rotation/Earner Study questions.
IPUMS CPS has been unable to produce a completely accurate universe statement for WKSWORKORG. The given universe is the best empirically investigated universe found. In each month there are a substantial number of respondents (generally around 500, but as high as 700 in some months) that meet known universe criteria yet have no responses to WKSWORKORG. There are also a small number of respondents (generally around 30 per month) who do not meet universe requirements and have responses to WKSWORKORG.
This variable is otherwise comparable across available years.
- Employed civilians 15+ in outgoing rotation groups that were paid annually. Excludes self-employed persons.
