Notes: This variable was 100% coded at Census processing. For LS members aged 16 and over a maximum of three codes was accepted during census processing. If more than three boxes were ticked the lowest numbered boxes were chosen except that code 05 (Government training/employment scheme) takes priority over all other codes, and code 08 (at school or in full-time education), becomes a second priority. The third code does not contribute to the derived variable ALWEEK9. For definitions see 1991 Census Appendix 20.
