Each line represents a single cohort interviewed during March 2017 and tracks its employment rate from the month of first interview (wave 1) to final interview (wave 5), a year later. For example, all respondents interviewed will be in their first interview (March 2017), second interview (first interviewed in December 2016), third interview (first interviewed in September 2016) and so on. The final point of each line is the employment rate in the month being measured.
