The final record of this type for each individual may be one of three different kinds: a) a generated present employer record as indicated above; b) a completed record where this was the last job the respondent has had to date, and this began 1.9.90 and has finished; c) a record containing only status and start date, where the job began after 1.9.90. In this last case, further information about this job and any subsequent jobs held by the respondent will be contained in the main panel Record Types (e.g. AINDRESP or AJOBHIST).
No attempt has been made to enforce consistency with the lifetime employment status history collected at Wave two, and contained in Record Type BLIFEMST. However this history was available to the respondent, and the variable CLJESFV on Record Type CINDRESP indicates whether the respondent believed this to be correct. In this case, the variable CLJESFN will indicate the number of the employment status spell which should correspond to this record (=BLESHNO on Record Type BLIFEMST).
A further discussion of the use of this Record Type appears in Volume A.
