Job Search

Job Search in the Weeks before the Survey (CPS Questions)

In rounds 1, 4, and 10, questions based on the Current Population Survey (CPS) asked NLSY97 respondents age 15 or older about job search (all respondents had reached age 15 in round 4). Respondents who did not report working in the week before the survey stated whether they had been doing anything to find work during the last four weeks.

Industry

For both employee and self-employed jobs, respondents' verbatim descriptors of their business or industry are coded using a three-digit Census code frame. Freelance jobs that do not qualify as self-employment are coded according to the type of work performed. (See Attachment 1: Census Industrial & Occupational Classification Codes for more details about the Census coding).

Gaps in Employment

Created Variables

EMP_GAP_START_WEEK_XXXX.XX.The start week of a gap on a civilian job.

EMP_GAP_START_YEAR_XXXX.XX. The start year of a gap on a civilian job.

EMP_GAP_END_WEEK_XXXX.XX. The end week of a gap on a civilian job.

EMP_GAP_END_YEAR_XXXX.XX. The end year of a gap on a civilian job.

Fringe Benefits

Questions on fringe benefits are only asked of respondents who report an employee job lasting at least 13 weeks that ended after the date of their 16th birthday, or who are age 16 and over and report an on-going employee job at which they have worked at least 13 weeks. For each job meeting the above criteria, the interviewer hands the respondent a card listing typical fringe benefits (see Figure 1) and asks him or her to state the benefits available (if the interview is conducted by phone, the interviewer reads the list aloud).
