Distribution by occupation


This indicator shows the percentage distribution of ISCO categories (1st ISCO level). ISCO is the international Standard Classification of Occupations. The distribution of employed persons according to this classification enables the focus to be placed on the types of occupations carried out. Generally speaking, the use of this occupation classification makes it possible to compare occupation statistics at international level. Due to its hierarchical organisation, the classification can be used for analyses of the population’s social structure.
