where to find IPUMS-ATUS vars re: 'yesterday' in Leave Module?

#1

In the BLS materials regarding the 2011 ATUS Leave Module, they mention three variables that relate to whether a respondent took leave *yesterday* (LELVMYTD, LELVYTD1, LULVYTD).

Can you tell me where I can find these data in the IPUMS-ATUS files?

Thanks!

The only variable in ATUS-X that refers to taking a leave “yesterday” is the TKLVYEST variable. This variable is actually based off of the variables to mention above and may be useful for your project. It indicates if the respondent took paid or unpaid leave “yesterday”. Additionally, respondents who were on leave from work yesterday were asked why they took leave.
