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 aged 15 and over. Also shown are personal characteristics such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, household relationship, educational background, and Hispanic origin. The Contingent Work Supplement questions, asked of all applicable persons aged 15 years and older, focused on contingent or temporary work that a person performed without expecting continuing employment from that particular employer. Additional questions covered workers' satisfaction with their current employment arrangements, job history, transition into the current employment arrangement, search for other employment, employee benefits, and earnings.
