WSHRSPREF indicates respondents' preferred mix of work hours and income. The pay rate is assumed to be constant, and they are asked whether they would prefer to work fewer hours (less income), more hours (more income), or the same number of hours as they currently work (same income). This question was asked of the respondent's primary job only.
The "primary job" is defined as the job at which the respondent worked the most hours.
This variable is part of the Work Schedules Supplement.
