For all injury/poisoning episodes that reportedly occurred during the past 3 months, IRIPEMP reports whether the person who experienced the injury was employed full-time, part-time, or not employed at the time of this injury or poisoning.

IRIPEMP is an injury-level variable.

IRIPEMP is part of a series of variables initiated in 1997 that systematically report persons' injuries and poisonings, the cause, what the person was doing while sustaining the injury or poisoning, and where she/he was at the time of the injury or poisoning. For related variables and additional information, please see the User note on Injuries and Poisonings or use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.


Prior to 2000, persons were asked about injuries and poisonings separately, so IRIPEMP refers only to injury episodes from 1997 to 1999.
