how to incorporate the ISCO-88 into the regression in STATA
Since I am using the BHPS 18waves for my research: how the socioeconomics status affect the self-assessed health?
I got the socioeconomics status measured by the variable ''employment status'' and ''education status'', ''working hours'', ''income level'' in my main econometric estimating equation.
Y= b0+ b1.age b3.employment b5.education+ b6.working hours. (I am using STATA (an econometric software)for estimation)
I find in the documentation, there are 4 types of classification talking about the socioeconomics status. The one that I am most interested in is the international standard classification of occupation ISCO-88, which is available in all waves.
After carefully read this classification, i find that there are 10 major group, which describing the individual's job/career.
My question is how to incorporate this classification into the variable ''empolyment status'' in my main estimating equation in STATA?
thanks in advance,
