This codebook describes the content and structure of the American Working Conditions Survey data (AWCS) which was fielded on the RAND American Life Panel (ALP) in 2015. The main purpose of the AWCS is to collect detailed information on a broad range of working conditions in the American workplace. This codebook is for an analysis dataset created from the raw data. Due to the complexity of the survey design (randomized question ordering, complex skip patterns etc.) we are providing an analysis data set that includes recoded variables, data labels, and value labels as well as variable notes.
