NoteVariables associated with payments or receipts include two for each, the amount of the receipt or payment (here JJ2PAY), and the period in weeks which it covered (here JJ2HRS). These variables should not be used without first converting to a common time metric (e.g. dividing by the number of weeks). You should be aware that for a small number of cases the period of receipt is less than one week; in these cases, you may wish to take special action. Includes imputed data. As this is a variable directly associated with a question, the imputation flag (here JJ2PAYI) takes the missing value code of the original variable (e.g. Don't know, refuse, etc.) if imputed, and 0 if not imputed, or -8 if the variable was inapplicable. See notes on Imputation in Vol. A. Included in summary derived variables on gross pay, net pay, and total income.
