Comparability — General

The data are broadly comparable across samples, but the precise number of hours constituting full- or part-time work varies or went unstated. The Iraq sample applies a minimum number of hours worked for part-time. The samples also differ in terms of the timeframe for the question: whether the person was usually full-time for a specified time period such as the previous year.

The 1991 United Kingdom sample excludes self-employed persons.

The Switzerland samples indicate if the person worked part-time within their primary profession, but part-time workers could have multiple jobs and therefore work a large number of hours in total.

Many samples report number of hours worked separately in HRSWORK1 and HRSWORK2.

Comparability — Austria [top]

Full-time work is defined as 32 hours or more per week on average.

Comparability — Canada [top]

Respondents were asked to report if they worked mainly part or full time in the previous year. In 1991, 2001 and 2011, the questionnaire defined full-time work as 30 or more hours; the earlier censuses did not include a definition.

Comparability — France [top]

The 1990, 2006 and 2011 census questionnaires did not define full-time employment. In 1999, the census stipulated that full- or part-time was to be determined relative to the average work time for the person's employer.

Comparability — Germany [top]

Persons must work 36 or more hours to be classified as full time.

Comparability — India [top]

The question refers to usual work intensity of the previous 365 days. Full-time work was not defined.

Comparability — Iraq [top]

Full-time employment is defined as six or more hours per day. Part-time work means at least two and less than six hours per day.

Comparability — Ireland [top]

Respondents self-classified as full- or part-time workers.

Comparability — Italy [top]

The data are comparable across years.

Comparability — Spain [top]

There are no comparability issues.

Comparability — Switzerland [top]

Part-time workers could have multiple jobs and therefore work a large number of hours in total. The unharmonized source variables categorize the number of hours worked by part-time workers. The 1970 and 2000 samples have an "unknown" category.

Comparability — United Kingdom [top]

Full-time work in both samples is 31 or more hours usually worked per week.

The 1991 data refer to work in the main job. The 1991 census did not address the question to self-employed persons, but the 2001 census included them. There is an age cap of 74 years in 2001.
