Column No. 17 - Time worked. - How many months did you work during the year that ended June 2? This question will be asked to all employed and unemployed persons. The number of complete months that a person worked during the year before the census date should be written down, whether full time or part time.
Special care is recommended in registering the time worked by persons whose job has not been full time. If a person supplies information about the number of days worked habitually during the week, the result of the months worked will be obtained in the following table:
Days worked in the week / Months worked
1 day = 2 months
2 day = 4 months
3 day = 6 months
4 day = 8 months
5 day = 10 months
6 day = 12 months
Vacations, sickness-related absences, or other causes; during which one receives remuneration in money or in kind, should be considered as time worked.
This variable indicates the number of months worked during the year that ended June 2.
