I’m requesting this report from the ASEC SDA:
This should give employment status for 2013-17, for ages 16+, for those who worked part of the year last year (wkswork2(1-5)), and for those who are not in the universe for ACTNLFLY. The universe for that question should be everyone who is in the labor force at the time of the survey (March) (see here: https://cps.ipums.org/cps-action/vari…). So my request should only include people who are NILF now, but worked part of the year last year. I want to know the reasons for NILF currently (this is in the EMPSTAT variable).
But, employment status of these people is NOT always NILF - in fact less than 10% are. Any explanation for this?
