Job Task Survey

Short Description: Job tasks carried out by individuals can differ significantly even within narrowly defined occupations. This module asks respondents about the job tasks they carry out at their workplace, hence allowing for a detailed look into occupations. Subsequent waves of this module would allow analyzing job changes due to idiosyncratic shocks.

Methodological Details: Participants were asked the following question: “How much time of your usual workday do the following tasks take up? Is it ‘almost all the time’, ‘more than half the time’, ‘less than half the time’, ‘almost no time’ or ‘no time’?” Examples of tasks include “operating, controlling, setting up or maintaining machines, equipment or technical processes”, “teaching, training or educating people” and “sorting, archiving, or marking things”.
