GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
Variable is constructed for all persons administered this module in each questionnaire. For this reason the lower age cut-off (and perhaps upper age cut-off) at which information is collected will vary from country to country.
All persons are considered active in the labour force if they presently have a job (formal or informal, i.e. are employed) or do not have a job but are actively seeking work (i.e. unemployed).
