This collection provides data on labor force activity for the week prior to the survey. Comprehensive data are available on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons 14 years old and over. Also presented are personal characteristics such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, household relationship, educational background, and Spanish origin. This collection also contains a supplement which includes data on job tenure and occupational mobility. Supplemental data are provided on length of time doing current kind of work and length of time working continuously for the present employer. Respondents who had changed occupations were asked the reason for changing from the kind of work done in January 1986 and what education or training programs were completed since January 1986. They were also asked about pay comparisons between the current job and the job held in January 1986.
