I want to separate self-employed individuals into two categories: own-account workers, and self-employed owner-manager with employees. I found that in CPS ASEC, variable FIRMSIZE reports the number of employees. However FIRMSIZE only has categories for NIU, Under 10, 10-24 etc. Can I intepret NIU as without any employee?? If not, is there a way to do so?
PS. I saw that in another question (Variable FIRMSIZE vs NOEMP from the CPS), differences between FIRMSIZE and NOEMP were asked. I tried to find variable NOEMP, but couldn’t. Is this variable deleted for some reason?
