[INTERVIEWERS: READ THE FOLLOWING FOR RESPONDENTS WHO ARRIVE TO C.16a]
INTRO (READ OUT): I'm going to ask you to tell me more about your full history of economic activities. What we are interesting in are your labour market-related activities such as paid or unpaid work, looking for work, or other activities such as time spent at home or looking after your family. As we need to get as complete a picture as possible, I'd like you to tell me about any spells you may have had in or out of paid employment. Please do not include periods of activity that are less than 3 months in time. Approximations are fine.
