    Standard Classification of Occupations

    The International Standard Classification of Occupations is an International Labour Organization classification structure. The current version, ISCO-08 (http://www.ilo.org/public/english/bureau/stat/isco/isco08/ ) is the fourth iteration, following ISCO-58, ISCO-66, and ISC-88.

    The International Labour Organization describes the purpose of the ISCO-88 as: a tool for organising jobs into a clearly defined set of groups according to the tasks and duties undertaken in the job. It is intended both for statistical users and for client oriented users. The main client oriented applications are in the recruitment of workers through employment offices, in the management of short or long term migration of workers between countries as well as in the development of vocational training programmes and guidance.?

    For more information see Summary of Major Occupation Groups (http://www.ilo.org/public/english/bureau/stat/isco/isco88/publ4.htm)
