Status Information


Term Description

This protocol includes several questions about the respondent's current job, including the job title, industry, activities, when the job was started, hours spent working each week, and normal hours of the day worked. Occupation and industry entries are coded using the Standardized Occupational Classification System (SOC) and the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes from the U.S. Census Bureau. The respondent is asked a number of questions about his longest held job, including name of occupation, industry, types of activities performed, and length of time worked. As an alternative, the respondent is asked specific details about every job he/she has had for 6 months or longer since he/she was 16 years old. Information obtained about each job includes: the name of the company, job title, when the job started and stopped, address of the company, whether it was full-time, part-time, or seasonal work, type of business, main activities on the job, chemicals and materials handled, and tools and equipment used. Respondents are not likely to recall all of their occupations and details about those occupations. The interviewer should probe respondents to get the most accurate information possible.
