What is the meaning of category 20 of the EMPSTAT variable which says:
- With job, but not at work?
Does this mean respondent’s have a job but are not physically at work and are not getting paid? Does it mean they are on short-term disability, or on vacation?
I am asking because I am trying to recode this variable into a new variable and am a bit confused about the category and how to treat it in the new variable.
Also, does anyone have an opinion on how I should collapse the categories or merge them?
Any thoughts will be appreciated. Thanks!
