Section III: Creation of Yearly Files

In the process of tracking labor market behaviors such as multiple job holding (i.e., when an individual simultaneously works two or more jobs), R&P decided that quarterly files alone were inadequate, because the time frame within the quarter a job was worked is unknown. A year-based file was created to aid this tracking process (See Appendix C for more extensive information on Multiple Job Holding). R&P developed a new file structure and procedures for populating that structure with data. R&P personal created several programs that systematically reproduce the population process. The following basic steps describe the process of populating these yearly files (some steps are processed basically at the same time during the execution of these programs):

Part B of this section contains crosstabulations of economic and demographic variables for the years 1992 through 1998. They show the distribution and relationship of these variables to each other in Wyoming's labor market over this time period.

Part C of this section contains crosstabulations of the variable Attachment to the Labor Market by Primary Industry, Gender and (Current Population Survey) CPS Age Group for the years 1993 and 1998. They show how different age groups, genders and industries have chosen to interact with the labor market over time.

Part D of this section contains crosstabulations of Primary Industry by Secondary Industry for 1993 and 1998. They show what industries tend to employ individuals who work for more than one employer in a year and in what industry that second job tends to occur.
