Comparability — General

The majority of samples inquire if an employed individual wants to work more (or less) hours, but some ascertain more generally whether the person wanted "additional work."

The universe of persons to whom this question applies varies across samples in age. The question is restricted in some countries only to employed persons working less than 40 hours per week.

Comparability — India [top]

In 1993 and 1999, the questionnaire asks whether the person was seeking or available for additional work while they were employed in the last year. Thus, WRKMORE interprets that a respondent seeking for additional work wanted to work more hours.

Comparability — Italy [top]

The Italy 2011-2019 Labor Force surveys ask if the respondent wanted to work a different number of hours in the previous week, considering the main and any secondary jobs. The unharmonized source variables allow identifying persons who would like to work fewer hours, which are recoded to "no" in WRKMORE.

Comparability — Nigeria [top]

The Nigeria 2006-2008 and 2010 samples indicate whether employed persons working less than 40 hours a week would be voluntarily willing to work more hours if given the opportunity. The unharmonized source variables in these samples distinguish the willingness to work the extra hours voluntarily and non-voluntarily.

Comparability — Spain [top]

The Spain 2005-2019 Labor Force surveys ask whether the respondent would like to work more hours. The unharmonized source variables allow identifying persons who would like to work fewer hours, which are recoded to "no" in WRKMORE.

Comparability — Uruguay [top]

The Uruguay 2006 sample asks if the person would like to work more hours.
