Description

Hello,
I would like to construct hourly wages with w_paygu_dv and w_jbhrs/w_jshrs for the employed and self-employed.
So far, I have taken paygu_dv and divided it by 4.33 and by either jbhrs and jshrs to obtain hourly wages.
I think I looked thoroughly enough, but I could not find the number of weeks worked per year in USoc.
I guess I could construct a cleaner hourly wage variable if I had that information.
So my short question is if there exists such a variable?

Dear Nico,

Unfortunately this variable does not exist.
