Imputation and Derivation
Generated by ERF
The lower age cut-off (and perhaps upper age cut-off) at which information is collected will vary from country to country.

Classifies the main job of any individual with a job (EMPLOYED=1) and is missing otherwise. As most surveys collected detailed information and then coded it using national classifications, and the original data is not in the data bases, no attempt has been made to correct or check the original coding.

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.

Q509 indicates the occupation in the main job for those employed at the time of the survey, while Q520 indicates the occupation 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.
