Sibling respondents who had never held a first full-time civilian job
at the time of their 1977 interview were not asked about the first job
in the 1993/94 interview, although these respondents may have held
such a job after 1977.
Several sibling respondents returned to school after working for a
number of years. If we have information about the sibling respon-
dent's first full-time job after they left school for the first time,
we have coded them SF002RE=2.

keep their 1990 major industry designation. No
attempt was made to reconcile these cases.

Consistent with 1990 Census procedures, civilian occupation
codes were assigned to military personnel if they described
civilian occupational activities. Therefore, it is possible
to assign a code for those individuals on this variable.
Individuals in the military who only described military
occupations were assigned the military occupation codes and
coded military on this variable.
