Description

WRKCONTRCT refers to the person's type of work contract, whether it is indefinite (permanent) or fixed-term (temporary).

Comparability — General

The concept of indefinite (permanent) contract indicates that there is no time limit in the work relationship, while a fixed-term (temporary) contract expires after a pre-determined time or specific event.

The first digit of WRKCONTRCT distinguishes between fixed-term and indefinite work relationships. The second digit specifies the type of fixed-term work contract, when this information is available.

The universe of persons to whom the question applies varies across the samples in age as well as labor force status. For most samples, the question applied to employed persons. There are variations in definitions used across samples and users should carefully inspect the country-specific comparability sections in order to make valid inferences.

Comparability — Egypt [top]

Seasonal or as needed workers includes both "seasonal" as well as "casual" workers, which are those who work on non-consecutive days (e.g. construction workers.).

The universe includes those who are economically active; persons currently unemployed report information about their last job.

Comparability — India [top]

The India 1993 and 1999 samples consider a contract permanent when "the person is in normal course likely to continue in the same employment".

The question includes persons age 5+ who worked in 1999, but only those age 5+ who worked as regular wage or salaried employee in 1993.

Comparability — Italy [top]

In the 2011-2019 Labor Force Surveys, fixed-term contracts referring to work that is intermittent by nature are classified as "seasonal or as needed"; however, the questionnaire suggests that this category may include contracts "covering the absence of another worker".

Comparability — Nicaragua [top]

The questionnaire does not specifically mention "contract", it instead refers to the type of work that the respondent performs.

Comparability — Palestine [top]

The 2017 census asks about the nature of the person's contract for those who ever worked as a wage employee (including those currently unemployed); responses refer to their current or their previous job.

Comparability — Panama [top]

The 1980 and 1990 indicate only whether employment was permanent or temporary, while the 2000 and 2010 samples also identify persons contracted for a specific project separately from other fixed-term workers. Persons without a written contract are distinguished in the 2010 sample only.

The universe includes persons age 10+ who were economically active in 1980 and 1990. The 2000 and 2010 samples further require that respondents ever worked as employee (unemployed persons refer to their last job.)

Comparability — Spain [top]

The unharmonized source variables for the 2005-2019 Spain Labor Force Surveys allow identifying whether an indefinite employment contract was permanent or discontinuous.
