Description

WRKTENURE indicates the length of time (in months) workers have been in their current job or with their current employer.

GENERAL

Uruguay

Comparability — General

The samples are generally comparable apart from small age differences in universes.

The variable is top-coded at 480 months (i.e. 40 years).

Comparability — Mauritius [top]

The 1990-2011 samples ask persons age 12+ who ever worked about their length of service. The enumeration instructions in 1990-2011 indicate that persons who had no job in the reference week should provide the length of service with their more recent employer.

The 1990 census collected the information in months for persons who worked less than a year and in years otherwise; while the length of service is represented only in years in 2000 and 2011. The data are converted to their equivalent in months in WRKTENURE.

Comparability — Uruguay [top]

The question in 2006 asked about the duration of employment in months or years of employment, which are all converted to their month equivalent in WRKTENURE.
