Description

Hi Team,

I am trying to reconstruct the employment history of all the individuals. So, according to my understanding, the data file 'empstat' captures only the changes in employment status history- meaning that it only capture if there was a change in employment status (i.e. full time to part time or unemployment, etc.), along with the start month and year of this employment status, and not the changes in companies/ job/ job hours.
However, in many cases, same employment status has been captured in different spells. For ex- spell 1 and spell 2 had the same employment status (but with different start month and year, ofcourse)
So, my question is whether we should merge these spells into one? Or they are different in some other sense?
And in case they are merged as one then the start month and year (MY) of the earlier spell should be used as the start MY?

One such case is pidp=68019051 in e_empstat.
