NEW OCCUPATION CLASSIFICATION
The ABS, Statistics New Zealand (SNZ) and the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR) have developed a draft of a new occupation classification - the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO). During the first half of 2004 the ABS, SNZ and DEWR will seek advice from professional organisations and industry and employer bodies on particular occupation groups to help refine the draft structure. In mid-2004, a final round of information sessions will be held to give stakeholders the opportunity to provide input to the draft classification. ANZSCO will be implemented in ABS and SNZ collections from 2006. For further information on the development of ANZSCO please contact Ian McLean on (02) 6252 5377, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
