Yes, you can find spouse characteristics, including SPEMPSTAT, the employment status of a spouse or partner, here. Additionally, when creating your extract, if you have included EMPSTAT as one of your variables, you can choose to “attach characteristics”, which will include an option to attach spouse/partner employment status.
