Interviewed people who had a job interruption during one of the 2 reference periods: (1) Jan. 29-Mar. 11, 1995; or (2) Apr. 23-June 3, 1995. Gathered information on subsequent employment during a 13-month period, background demographics on the individual and the household, as well as information on job search activities and outcomes, income, assets and debts, expenditures, and training. In 1996, the COEP survey was re-designed as the Changes in Employment Survey. The re-designed survey had changes in the sample design and content to allow a more complete picture of the population of individuals experiencing a loss or change of employment. The main change to the content compared to COEP 1995 is as follows: information is collected about all employers the individual worked for during the reference period whereas under the 1995 design, information was only collected for the ROE employer, the next employer and the current employer.
