TIMEVIBMATN is a 2-digit numeric variable with no implied decimals.
0: Not in universe
98: 98 or more
For sample persons aged 18 and older who worked last year at a civilian job and the job required working with vibrating machines, TIMEVIBMATN reports the length of time (in number of minutes or hours) that the person spends working with the vibrating machine(s) during a typical work day.
Users should combine TIMEVIBMATN with TIMEVIBMATP, which reports the time period for the number in TIMEVIBMATN, to get complete information on the amount of time that the person spends working with the vibrating machine(s) at his/her job.
This variable was included in the 1988 Occupational Health supplement.
