  • Abstract

    Supplementary information on involuntary job loss and occupational training programs is provided in this collection, in addition to standard monthly Current Populaion Survey data on labor force activity. Workers who lost a job within the previous five years due to operating decisions of their employer were surveyed. Data include the reasons for job displacement, industry and occupation, job tenure and earnings, and health and unemployment benefits. The occupational training portion of the collection contains data on training program attended within the past two years, including the number, length, and type of programs attended, as well as the source of payment. The monthly labor force information includes data for persons age 14 and older on employment status, occupation, and industry. Demographic data such as age, sex, race, marital status, veteran status, education, household relationship, and Spanish origin are also provided.
