This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.
WSWKDAYS reports the number of days that respondents usually work in a week for their primary job. This includes work done at home, in the office, or any other location.
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.
In 1976 there is a small number of respondents who have valid WSWKDAYS responses despite not meeting known universe criteria.
In the 1976 through 1991 surveys, respondents were allowed to provide some non-whole day answers.
In 1977, the answer "4 days" does not appear in the data.
In 1977, unemployed individuals are in-universe for this variable. For these people, the reference job is the most recent job held.
Starting in 1997, response categories indicating "Refusal" and "Don't Know" were added. Starting in 2001, a response category for "Varies" was added.
In 1985, 6,214 individuals were in-universe for the Work Schedules Supplement but did not answer the supplement questions. These individuals have been coded as "No Response" if they met WSWKDAYS universe criteria.
