Employment Status Recode - Appendix 2

National Longitudinal Survey of Youth - 1997 Cohort

Employment Status Recode - Appendix 2

Variables Created

  • CV_ESR
  • CV_ESR_COLLAPSED

Using data from the CPS section, this program creates a variable for the respondent's employment status during the week before the interview. The CPS section was included only in rounds 1, 4, and 10, so these variables are available only for those rounds.
