Data on occupations are collected in a wide variety of social and labour statistical collections and are a central element in labour market analysis, educational planning, immigration policy development and a range of other government activities. This standard describes how the ABS collects occupation statistics and provides a basis for the standardised collection, analysis and dissemination of occupation data. The use of this statistical standard will enable improved comparability of occupation statistics produced by Australia and New Zealand.
