The inclusion of four women as working zero hours a week is not an
error. These women are currently working jobs, but are working
minimal hours. Their work experiences are confined to
concentrated areas within the month and occur rather sporadically.
Thus, their job information cannot be divided into weekly hours.

Note: See Appendix E - COR582 Creation of Hourly Wage Rate Variables.

For Code 3: Two respondents are hourly workers who
reported "other" as hourly base wage. Interviewer
comments included wage information that could be coded
as a wage rate.

For Code 14: Seven cases responded "other" to
"how are you paid--hourly, salary, or what?" (266r).
Interviewer notes in the other/specify lines provided
information that made it possible to code a wage rate.

Note: We wanted to know the number of people that work at R's specific
place or work, determined by people who work at the same company
or organization, at the same mailing address. We were not
interested in people who work for the same company or
organization, yet are located in a satellite office in another
city. Rather, we were interested in the establishment where R
works.

For instance, if a respondent reports that he/she worked at Kohls'
grocery store in Madison, we would be interested in the number of
employees at that particular store. We were not interested in the
number of persons who work at the other Kohls located throughout
Madison, nor the number of people who work for Kohls company-wide.
Likewise, if a person works in a department of a large
establishment, we wanted to know how many people worked at that
establishment not that department. For instance, if a person
works in a cafeteria in a factory, we wanted to know how many people
work in that factory, not in the cafeteria. If R did not know
how many co-workers he/she had, we probed. If this did not work,
we relied on the follow up question, which captured an estimate.

to what most people consider an average job. So considering
everything -- pay, fringe benefits, working conditions,
kind of work, etc. We find that most people think of
jobs like telephone operator, carpenter, or payroll clerk
as average jobs. Let's give an average job a rating
of 100. Then, if your job (is/was) TWICE as good as an
average job, you should give it a rating of 200. If it
(is/was) HALF as good, give it 50, and so on. You can
give any number you like."
