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.
