National Classifications of Occupations and ISCO
 



Many countries have used one or more versions of ISCO as the model for their own national classifications, whereas others have retained or developed their own national structures. Some regional classifications have also been developed on the basis of ISCO. Many countries which have adopted ISCO as a model have defined the structure of their national classifications in terms of a set of occupational titles and alternative titles but have not necessarily developed a set of associated definitional descriptions.

A number of countries are currently adapting their national classification to allow comparability with ISCO-08, or are developing or updating national classifications based on ISCO-08.
