Beginning with the 1988 survey, children age 10-14 were asked if they do any work for pay, not counting jobs around the house. The question posed is phrased as follows:

"Not counting jobs around the house, do you ever do any work for pay (including babysitting, paper route, or yard work for neighbors)?"

The age variables found in the two Areas of Interest called CHILD BACKGROUND (for all children) and in YA COMMON KEY VARIABLES (for Young Adults) reflect consistency checks and a small number of edits based on additional information.
