It is definitely a good start. But, if I set in your code the window instead of "begin-6" to a longer period, say "begin-31" than the window will be overwritten by the previous employment spells. In addition, it also does not count the number of weeks correctly until a previous emloyment spells starts. Does somebody see a solution to the problem?
