Core Employment Variables - Appendix 2

Variables Created

A large set of core employment variables is created using a single large program. This program is very long and is divided into two HTML files to speed downloads and viewing. The main file sections are as follows (each contained in a separate file):

Hourly Rate of Pay/Compensation and Job Length < 13 Weeks - Appendix 2

Variables Created

  • CV_HRLY PAY.xx
  • CV_HRLY_COMPENSATION.xx
  • CV_JOB_13_WKS.xx (CV_JOB<13_WKS in rounds 1-6)

This program creates the hourly rate of pay for NLSY97 respondents. The hourly rate of pay is constructed from stop date information for respondents whose job lasted more than 13 weeks. For all other respondents the start wage is used. Note that hourly rate of pay is reported with two implied decimal places.
