Sample text

ISCO is the most widely used classification system for grouping occupations according to the tasks and duties involved. The ISCO system is maintained by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). The ISCO system facilitates international communication regarding jobs, makes international comparisons possible, and serves as a model for the development of national occupation classification systems. In the ISCO system, an occupation is classified into one of nine major groups, and then into sub-groups.

In Norway, the difference between 25-34 year-olds and 55-64 year-olds is 7 percentage points; in Korea it is 59 percentage points. In almost all countries, 25-34 year-olds have higher tertiary attainment levels than the generation about to leave the labour market (55-64 year-olds). On average across OECD countries, 34% of the younger cohort has completed tertiary education, compared with 20% of the oldest cohort, while the average for the total population of 25-64 year-olds is 28%. The expansion of tertiary education differs substantially among countries.

The analysis in Indicator A1 is at the major group level. Like other international classification systems, ISCO changes only when major revisions are carried out. This means that ISCO does not fully capture changes in the labour market over time. Occupations evolve, as do their competency requirements. Some types of occupations disappear and others appear. The nature of these new occupations is not always fully described in the ISCO classification system. Accordingly, time series comparisons using the ISCO system should be interpreted with caution, considering the limitations of a static classification system.
