D. Economic activity
Questions for all columns in this section should only be asked to household members age 10 or older. For household members younger than 10, these columns should not be filled in at all.
Primary activity during the past week
For those who worked or ever worked during the past week, the first thing to investigate is the primary activity. If during the past week someone, besides engaging in his primary activity also engages in a side line or additional work, the investigation here is only concerned with the main activity whereas the side line or additional work will be asked about later. For those whose main activity was not work but had ever worked (at least 1 hour), then the work they did for at least 1 hour will be considered their main activity. What will be asked here is occupation, field of work, status, place of work, and duration of the work during the past week.
Column (4) type of activity/occupation
What is intended here is the type of work done by those who worked or ever worked during the past week.
Medical doctor, dentist, veterinarian, pharmacist, dietician, expert in some field
Health and food services.
Legal expert, lawyer, prosecutor, judge.
Professor/lecturer, high school teachers, etc.
Designer, draftsman, mechanical engineer, civil engineer.
Clerk, expert telex operator, telephone operator.
Merchant, singer, newsboy, kiosk seller.
Housemaid, female servant, houseboy.
Barber, hair stylist, makeup artist.
Baker, cake maker, candy maker, etc.
Dressmaker, tailor, etc.
Cobbler, cobbler's assistant, shoe repairer.
Carpenter, furniture maker, window hanger/glazier, etc.
Filling in the form
If a person's main activity is work or ever worked (D1 code "1" or D2 code "Y"), then ask:
"How many kinds of jobs did you engage in during the past week?" If only a single type of job was engaged in, then that job is referred to as the primary job. If he engaged in more than one type of job, then ask for which job during the past week did he spend the longest amount of time; the job on which he spent the longest amount of time is considered the primary job. Ask the question as follows:
"What was the type of work you did for your primary job during the past week?"
Write the respondent's answer as completely as possible like the examples given above. Thus, for example, for worker don't just write worker, but what type of worker, such as loads, unloads, and carries goods, construction worker, farm worker, etc. For teachers, give details such as elementary school teacher, middle school teacher, lecturer, headmaster, etc.
Do not fill in the code for column (5); it will be filled in at C.B.S.
This variable indicates the person's primary occupation during the previous week (3-digit code).
Persons age 10+ whose primary activity was work or who had another primary activity but worked one or more hours during past week
