Paul Ryscavage and Angela Feldman-Harkins
Component ID: #ti36538775


An important part of the data collected in SIPP is the information in labor force activity. From this data, it is possible to construct work experience data, or "panoramas" of individuals' experiences in the labor market. In this paper, work experience estimates derived from SIPP are compared to those obtained through the March Current Population Survey. In addition, potential uses of SIPP work experience data are discussed as well as the response bias problem found in labor force transition categories.
