Section 1 describes the construction of the PTER series in the CPS data.
PTER workers report working 23 hours per week on average as compared to 45 hours reported by those working full time.
Table 2 presents demographic characteristics of the three groups of employed workers, shedding some light on the difference in hourly wages between PTER workers and other employed persons.
To further understand the differences between wages of PTER workers and the rest of the employed population, we tabulate the shares of different types of workers across different occupations.
Interestingly, among the highest skill occupations, classified as non-routine cognitive, the share of PTER workers is only 0.
To understand whether the differences in wages between full-time, PTNER, and PTER workers can be explained by the differences in their sociodemographic characteristics and/or their occupations, we estimate a linear regression of the logarithm of the real hourly wage on educational level, occupation, race, gender, year, and employment type dummy variables.
14) We then perform a series of pairwise t-tests comparing the coefficient for the interaction term of full-time work (and similarly PTNER) to the coefficient for the interaction term of PTER with each of the seven occupational categories.
Figure 2 shows the population shares of full-time, PTNER, and PTER workers.
Figure 4 examines PTER by reason: slack work, could only find part-time work, and "other," which includes a job starting/ending during the reference week (such that hours add up to less than 35) and seasonal work.
Figure 5 shows the ratio of PTER workers to the number of unemployed workers in the economy.
