Social, Economic, Spatial, and Commuting Patterns of Dual Jobholders

Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics Technical Papers from Center for Economic Studies, U.S. Census Bureau

Abstract: Individuals who hold multiple jobs have complex working lives and complex commuting patterns. Economic and spatial information on these individuals is not readily available in standard datasets, such as the 2000 Decennial Census Long Form, because the survey questions were not designed to collect details on multiple jobs. This study takes advantage of firm-based data from the Unemployment Insurance administrative wage records, linked with the Census Bureau’s household-based data, to examine multiple jobholders - and specifically a sentinel group of dual jobholders. The study uses a sample from Los Angeles County, California and examines the dual jobholders by their demographic characteristics as well as their economic, commuting, and spatial location outcomes. In addition this report evaluates whether multiple jobholders should be included explicitly in future labor-workforce analyses and transportation modeling.
