WAGEHRRD
Hourly wage for current main job, round record

Description

[ PRELIMINARY VARIABLE: Variable description may change once we confirm the universe and assess the comparability of this variable over time. ]

For persons aged 16 and older who were in scope and have a current main job, WAGEHRRD reports the hourly wage for the person's current main job, on the round record. Hourly wage variables are calculated from annual salary, daily pay, piecework pricing, commissions, or bonuses if persons reported wages using one of these formats. For information on how an hourly wage was derived, including imputed values, see WAGEHRSRCRD. Additionally, hourly wages are top-coded. Please see the Codes and Comparability tabs for more information on differences in top-coded values over time.
