Each line represents a single cohort interviewed during December 2016 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 (December 2016), second interview (first interviewed in September 2016), third interview (first interviewed in June 2016) and so on. The final point of each line is the employment rate in the month being measured.
