Employment history for different samples
Hi support team,
I am looking to construct a variable indicating any unemployment spell prior to wave 8. I understand that for part of the GPS & EMB samples, the employment history module was asked in wave 1 and in wave 5 for the rest of the samples. The User Guide says that for the IEMBS information on previous employment history was collected in wave 6, however, unless I am missing something, I don't seem to find this module in the questionnaires etc. Could it be that this module was dropped and that for the IEMB sample no information is available on their employment (status) history prior to their first interview?

The employment history for GPS & EMBS first six months samples were asked in Wave 1, and for the remaining 18 months samples were asked in Wave 5. This was not asked of the IEMBS.
