Description

Hi Stephanie!
Thanks for answering my previous question. Additionally, I'd be interested to know if there is an overview over how the three-digit ISCO-88 classification was constructed (Variable: jlisco88. I understand that it follows the classic ISCO-88 definition but I am puzzled regarding the values 10, 11 and 200 who do not seem to fit into the standard classification to my knowledge.

Thanks and kind regards,
C.

Dear C,

Could you tell me which waves you are looking at? I can see a code of 10 in UKHLS datasets but not the other codes you mention.

Best wishes,
Stephanie

Hi Stephanie,

thanks for getting back. The code 200 and the code 11 both appear in the BHPS in wave 1 and 9. The code 10 appears in Understanding society in wave 1 and 2.

Thanks and best wishes,
C

Dear C,

THe coding for those variables in these waves was done by our fieldwork agencies at the time. The 11 and 200 codes will be because the job was not codeable at a lower level, so 11 refers to legstlators and senior officials, and 200 to professionals: https://www.ilo.org/public/english/bureau/stat/isco/isco88/major.htm

The 10 code will be related to inconsistencies or being mistaken for a missing value if coded as 0, and this refers to armed forces.

Best wishes,
Stephanie
