Data Element

Information from the submission form

Employment Status
This data element includes a coded concept, Employment Status, with time and date stamp and/or start date and end date. A person can be both employed and retired, and can have a different employment status for each job.

Employment Status is a person's self-reported, coded relationship to working for pay, family earnings, or training (e.g. having one or more jobs, searching for work, etc.). A person’s Employment Status is independent of Job characteristics, e.g., not “full-time work” or “part-time work,” because many people have more than one job.
