|BUSOWN-ID1 ||Section: Business Ownership|
We would like to know whether you have ever owned a business. By business, we mean any activity operated with regularity for the purpose of generating income or profit. We are interested in all incorporated companies and partnerships in which you had any ownership share, as well as unincorporated businesses that you may have operated as a sole proprietor, independent contractor, consultant, or free-lancer. This even includes informal businesses such as cleaning services, gardening services, and the selling of goods out of your home, as long as they generated income and were operated on a regular basis. The only businesses we are not interested in are those operated on a highly sporadic basis, those carried out purely as a hobby, and those in which you were merely a shareholder or investor with no role in the operation of the company.
Since you were 18 years old, have you ever owned a business that would be of interest to us according to this description?
(INTERVIEWER: PLEASE SEE HELP SCREEN FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.)

Some people work in jobs that are also businesses that they own. Have you ever had a job that was also a business that you owned, for example, you were a sole proprietor, an independent contractor, a consultant, or a free-lancer?
