Include all weeks employed at minimum wage or higher.


Include vacation time and other types of leave if the person was paid during that time.

Partial weeks are rounded up to the nearest whole week.

Ask this question if the person has been competitively employed since the last evaluation, even if not currently competitively employed.

If employment is infrequent but on a regularly scheduled basis, or if it is related to a specific function, then code the number of weeks during which the person was employed. But, if days of employment were just random and the person might or might not do it again, then code the total number of weeks in which the person worked. (E.g., if the person worked 2 times a month for 9 months, then in the first situation 39 weeks should be coded. In the second situation 18 weeks should be coded.)

*If data collector does not ask this question because the participant was illegally employed, code "99=Unknown".
Patient worked October 11 through December 21.
