(SG011JJ=1,2), but did not report an hourly wage (SG012JJC>=99997)
or a salary (SG013JJC>=9999997), then we should look for a monthly
wage. If no monthly wage was reported, then SG018JJD=99999. In
three cases, a salary AND a monthly wage was reported; SG018JJD
contains the monthly wage information, even though the salary infor-
mation will be used to compute the wage rate for these three sibling

AND TIPS before taxes and other deductions?" 33 of the respondents
who have not had a job spell for six months or longer between 1975-
1992/93 and are not currently working reported something other than
zero to this question. We have included all of their responses to this
variable since it is possible to have held a job for less than six

Where information on hours and/or weeks worked per year is missing,
wage rate is based on full-year (52 weeks), full-time (40 hours) work.
Where information about the salary or hourly wage from the sibling re-
spondent's current/last job is missing, information about the sibling
respondent's total yearly wage income is used to estimate the wage
rate (SG019JJ).
In most cases where sibling respondents reported yearly salary for
part-time work, weeks worked per year (SG007JJ) was used to
compute the wage rate, rather than the months worked (SG016JJF).
Only in cases where the months worked was much lower than 4
times the weeks worked was months used. Note that weeks worked
per year was NOT used in the creation of the corresponding
respondents' wage variable (RG021JJD).

Note: "Now I would like you to rate your job compared 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."
