NUMBER OF MONTHS CAPTURED IN SURVEY
This data item is simply the number of months someone was interviewed in the Labour Force Survey (LFS). It relates to the number of records for that person in the CURF.
Each private dwelling is selected for 8 months in the survey. but the people within the dwelling can have less than 8 records depending on how many times they were captured in the LFS. This data item provides a quick reference to the number of records per person, providing an indication of how complete the longitudinal data is for each person.
Refer to Longitudinal structure for more information.
People in special dwellings (see Residence Status [URSTATC]) only have one record of data (see Household ID [ABSHID]) and so this data item is always '1', for people in special dwellings.
