APPENDIX A SUMMARY CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN ANZSCO REVISION 1 AND ASCO SECOND EDITION AND NZSCO 1999


The summary correspondence table (concordance) presented here provides an overview of the conceptual relationship between occupations in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO) Revision 1 and both the Australian Standard Classification of Occupations (ASCO) Second Edition and the New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (NZSCO) 1999.


The letter 'p' indicates where there is a partial match from one classification to the other. For example:

ASCO Second Edition ANZSCO Revision 1NZSCO 1999

p = partial match p = partial match
6199-15 p Mail Supervisor 561212 Postal Delivery Officer 41423 Postal Deliverer
8114-13 Postal Delivery Officer 41424 p Mail Delivery Contractor
91211 p Courier and Deliverer


The relationship between ANZSCO Revision 1 and ASCO Second Edition illustrated in the correspondence table above, indicates that the ANZSCO Revision 1 occupation 561212 Postal Delivery Officer comprises some of the jobs which were classified in the ASCO Second Edition occupation 6199-15 Mail Supervisor and all of the jobs classified in the ASCO Second Edition occupation 8114-13 Postal Delivery Officer.


The relationship between ANZSCO Revision 1 and NZSCO 1999 illustrated above, indicates that the ANZSCO Revision 1 occupation 561212 Postal Delivery Officer comprises all of the jobs which were classified in the NZSCO 1999 occupation 41423 Postal Deliverer, some of the jobs classified in the NZSCO 1999 occupation 41424 Mail Delivery Contractor and some of the jobs classified in the NZSCO 1999 occupation 91211 Courier and Deliverer.


Detailed correspondence tables between ANZSCO Revision 1 and ASCO Second Edition, and ANZSCO Revision 1 and NZSCO 1999 are available in electronic format from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and Statistics New Zealand (Statistics NZ) websites.


These correspondences present important summary information for understanding the changes that have taken place in the definition of occupations between ANZSCO Revision 1 and ASCO Second Edition, and ANZSCO Revision 1 and NZSCO 1999. They do not, however, identify the proportion of an ASCO Second Edition occupation or an NZSCO 1999 occupation that would fall into a relevant ANZSCO Revision 1 occupation and vice versa.
