Abstract: This collection provides data on labor force activity for the week prior to the survey. Comprehensive data are available on the employment status, occupation, and industry of persons aged 14 and over. Also shown are personal characteristics such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, household relationship, educational background, and Spanish origin. The collection contains a supplement that includes data on skills and training that workers needed to obtain their current or last job, on-the-job training, skills used on the last job, and workers' perceptions of the adequacy of their skills. This supplement makes it possible to analyze changes in occupation and to assess the relative stability of employment in various industries and occupations. Questions were asked of all persons 15 years of age or older who were living in households and who were members of the experienced labor force, whether they were currently employed or not.
