This data item provides the age of the person.
Single year ages are recorded up until people aged 85 years and over.
Age is consistent across the longitudinal records. People who have a birthday during their 8 months in the labour force survey have had their age recorded as the most reported age. If a person has a birthday early during the 8 month period, their oldest age is recorded, and if a person has a birthday late, their youngest age is recorded.
