Resistant to change? some unexplained omissions from the 1990 standard occupational classification
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
As researchers with interests in both the theory and practice of occupational structures, our response to the new official framework for occupational classification is puzzlement. The Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) (Employment Department Group/Office of population Censuses and Surveys 1990) is a recent re-design of earlier official taxonomies commissioned by the Employment Department Group (EDG) and the Office of Population and Census Statistics (OPCS). Why can we not find in it several of the occupations with which both contemporary research and managerial policy is urgently concerned.
