The "No" option should be also chosen for those who did not have a job or a paying employment during the week preceding the enumeration point of time.
Ask the persons with the "Yes" option. "What is your status at your primary job?" Inform the respondent of all the prompts and let him/her choose the appropriate answer.
If a respondent had more than one job (paying occupation), ask him/her to identify a job he/she him/herself considers to be the primary job.
If the respondent finds difficulty in identifying the primary job, it is the one where he/she worked most of the time, or the one yielding larger income.
Those who changed the main job during the reference week, should identify the job he/she was doing by the end of the week.
Mark one of two suggested prompts.
"Working for hire" - for those who worked under a written agreement, contract or verbal agreement concluded with the management of an enterprise, organization or institution of any form of ownership, or with a private employer, and were remunerated by a wage or salary (in cash or in kind).

- were members of producers' cooperatives (crews);
