Comparability

This variable is only available for 1940. UCLASSWK is the only variable for 1940 indicating a class of work for persons who were not in the labor force (working, temporarily absent from a job, or looking for work) in the week prior to the census but who had worked in the past. The 1950 variable RCLASSWK similarly supplies a class of work for previously-employed persons not in the labor force in the week prior to the census. Beginning in 1960, the census collected class of worker data (see CLASSWKR) not only for persons currently in the labor force, but also for all persons who had worked during a specific reference period (within the past 10 years for 1960-1970, within the past five years for 1980-2000 and the ACS).
