Imputation and Derivation
Original survey variable renamed (Ref: Data dictionary.pdf)
The variable should generally cover the active sample (employed and unemployed if previously employed).

While for Unemployed never previously employed, the variable was coded missing.
Active sample reported as "not stated (code 999)" should normally include employed for whom the status was not identified and unemployed previously employed if status in last job is not reported.

Those unemployed and do not search for a job are considered inactive, hence their previous employment information, if they were ever active, is recoded missing.

Q511 indicates the sector of employment in the main job for those employed at the time of the survey, while Q522 indicates the sector of employment in the last held job for those reported as unemployed ever worked.
Ever employed individuals were identified using Q513 in the raw data, indicating if the individual has ever been employed for a period of 6 continuous months or more.
