Derived Variable Note

Standard Occupational Classification 2000 (SOC 2000) of last job. Condensed 3-digit version. This is applicable to respondents who have not been in paid employment in the last week but were in paid employment in the past. The classification is coded post-field using the respondent’s description of the job. In the first two waves of Understanding Society the description was first coded to the code frame of SOC 2000. From Wave 3 onward, job descriptions were first coded to the code frame of SOC 2010 and the code for earlier versions of the classification was computed from a look-up file.
