Is the OCC2 variable harmonized across the years in ATUS-X, given that the occupation coding system used in the ATUS changed after 2010? The documentation on your website indicates that OCC2 is comparable across years. But I thought I should double check about whether it is because the ATUS variable dictionary for the 2003-2015 multi-year data file has an occupation variable called TRMJOCGR that matches OCC2 (with the exception that it aggregates a few of the categories in OCC2), but the documentation states that the variable is not strictly comparable across years.
A previous discussion on this forum discusses whether the OCC variable is harmonized, but does not discuss the OCC2 variable. So I thought I should post my question. Thank you very much.
