Lie? End the survey unnecessarily?
My quandary surely affects many other participants, but I haven't seen it posted here:
Answering questions about employment is frustrating. I'm a private piano teacher in my home. I don't work for a company, am not the traditional retirement age, yet cannot say I am employed in any way. No answer fits.
Any form of "employed" leads to being asked about my organization's worth, number of employees, my functions there, etc. Sidestepping the issue gives me a profile that's not true and would result in incorrect data information.
I am not unemployed in any way, not looking, not disabled. "Self-employed" either part- or full-time leads to questions about my company.
Sometimes "other" is offered with no further queries, but that says nothing -- and provokes fear that further details will be required.
This does not seem like a difficult issue. A simple "other" and specifying what that means would take care of it from my end, I think.
Again, while I'm using first-person, many others must encounter the same problem.
Your company would be considered any member of your private lessons team.
Organization size would probably be one and org. revenue would be your total (estimated) receipts for the year.
Leave a comment if you have any further questions!

you also rarely have food service as in chefs or kitchen workers listed as a choice. especially like me, a cafeteria worker for sedexo that works in schools and hospitals but has no input into those places other than the people we serve on the line. there are a LOT of us. please don't neglect our input.
