Codes and Frequencies
WKEMPLTYPE reports the type of employer for whom the respondent works.
Comparability — Index
In addition to universe differences and variations in question wording, WKEMPLTYPE includes different response categories. IPUMS-DHS maximizes comparability by using composite coding, with the first digit distinguishing between "government," "other public sector," and "private sector" work, and the second digit distinguishing between types of private sector employment (e.g., code "32" for "family members").

WKEMPLTYPE is a country-specific variable not included in any phase of the standard DHS questionnaire.
