Index TermsKey Linking Variable
NoteMost recent job is current job, or last job reported at this or a preceding wave. Full industry coding to the 1992 SIC began in Wave 11. Main jobs were also coded to 1992 SIC at Wave 4 and Wave 7. This variable is therefore only available for GB respondents who have reported a job from Wave 11 onwards, or those who were in work at Wave 4 or 7, and did not report any other new job up to Wave 10. It is available for all members of the Northern Ireland sample who have reported a current or previous job.
