ABOUT THIS RELEASE
The Classification and Classified List of Occupations are designed primarily for use in classifying occupation descriptions recorded on schedules at the 1976 Census of Population and should be used in conjunction with the companion volume, Index of Occupations, 1976.
The Classification of Occupations has been adapted from and closely adheres to the principles embodied in the International Standard Classification of Occupations issued by the International Labour Office, Geneva, 1958 and as revised in 1968. The International Standard Classification of Occupations, 1958 was prepared after extensive discussions and research by world experts, to provide an adequate classification framework for countries interested in occupation classification, and, at the same time, provide a basis for international comparison of occupation data obtained mainly from Censuses of Population. The 1968 edition embraces the experience reported by member countries during the previous decade.
This publication has been converted from older electronic formats and does not necessarily have the same appearance and functionality as later releases.
