GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
All individuals who have received any earnings during the reference period, only a subset may have been in employment at the time of the survey.
If the individual file does not include all household members, or if incomes are not available at the individual level, the variable is constructed either from other individual level variables (e.g. employment status), or directly from household level original information.
Pensioners and any individual receiving any kind of income is considered as earner.
