|ISCO-08 Structure, index correspondence with ISCO-88|
ISCO-08 was adopted through a resolution of a Tripartite Meeting of Experts on Labour Statistics held in December 2007. This resolution was subsequently endorsed by the Governing Body of the ILO in March 2008. The introductory and methodological notes, ISCO-08 structure and group definitions are provided in the files below.
A spreadsheet containing the most up-to-date version of the ISCO-08 Index of Occupational Titles, originally intended to be published as ISCO-08 Volume 2, links job titles that may be used in response to questions on occupation in statistical and administrative data collections and ISCO-88 and ISCO-08 groups. This may be used to find more comprehensive information about the detailed content of each unit group and as the basis to develop national indices for assigning survey responses to classifications based on ISCO.
Spreadsheets showing the correspondence between ISCO-88 and ISCO-08 are also provided. The tables show the corresponding codes and titles for ISCO-88 and ISCO-08 unit groups, presented in code order for each classification. The letter 'p' in Column E indicates that only part of the group listed in column D corresponds with the group shown in column C. Comments are provided, where the specific occupations involved in a particular partial correspondence may not be self evident, or where other clarification may be necessary.
