Contents >> Appendix 9 - Classification of occupation

Occupation (of main job held at the time of the survey) is classified to the full 4 digit level of the Australian Standard Classification of Occupation (cat. no. 1222.0). While survey results can technically be compiled at this level, the survey sample is not sufficient to support reliable output at that level. For most output purposes, occupation classified to the broader Major and Sub-Major group level classifications, as shown below, would be more suitable.
