ONS Consultation: Occupational Classification

Bridge Workers

The ONS is carrying out a consultation on revising the Standard Occupational Classification 2010 (SOC2010). They are investigating a potential minor revision to the classification for SOC2020 and are asking which areas of SOC2010 should be reviewed.

ONS is also interested to know about use of the National Statistics Socio-economic classification (NS-SEC), which is derived using SOC and other labour market information.

For info, here are the links to SOC and NSSEC on the ONS website:
