Hours actually worked per week

Hours actually worked per week are the number of hours worked in the survey week by an employee, self-employed or unpaid family worker who has been at work during the survey week. Hours actually worked per week are inquired separately on main and secondary jobs. Included are also paid and unpaid overtime hours. On the other hand, holidays, mid-week holidays and absences for other reasons (e.g., sickness) shorten hours actually worked per week.
