OWNER-OCCUPIED HOUSING: Houses that are, quite simply, occupied by the owners. A person, or family, owns a house and lives in it. The contrast is with rental property, in which owners rent their houses out to others. Owner-occupied housing is important for the estimation of gross domestic product because it involves current production but has no market transactions. As such, the value of housing services have to be estimated before inclusion in gross domestic product.

SURVEY WEEK, CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY:

The calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) containing the 19th day of the month that is used to conduct the Current Population Survey (CPS). This is the time period in which CPS interviews contact occupants of 60,000 households included in the survey. The survey questions posed by the interviewers then refer to the employment activities of the respondents during the previous calendar week, which is the termed the reference week. The activities of survey respondents during the reference week are the source of information used to estimate the unemployment rate and other employment information generated by the CPS.
In essence, about 1,500 census survey takers set forth bright and early Sunday morning during the survey week to canvas the country side. Over the course of the next seven days, each survey taker conducts a relatively detailed interview with the occupants of about 40 households. The questions posed to the occupants inquire about their activities during the previous week, during the reference week.

The survey week immediately follows the reference week to ensure that respondents have an accurate recollection of their employment status. Should too much time pass between the survey week and the reference week, respondents might understandably forget what they did.

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time wandering around the shopping mall seeking to buy either a looseleaf notebook binder or hand lotion, a big bottle of hand lotion. Be on the lookout for deranged pelicans.
