Does UHRSWORK variable include people with multiple employers?

Does UHRSWORK include all hours worked including multiple Full or PT jobs, or does the variable only reflect primary employment? Thank you!

Staff Answer




For respondents with multiple jobs, UHRSWORK does not distinguish between jobs. Respondents were simply asked to report the total number of hours they usually worked per week at any job.

If you are interested in a breakdown of hours between jobs, the ATUS-X hours worked variables distinguish between a respondent's main job and any other jobs. You can find more information about the ATUS-X project here.

Hope this helps.
