Occupation and industry are among the most important variables for analyses of comparative social and economic structure because these censuses provide few alternative indicators of socioeconomic status or labor-force participation. The national statistical agencies employed quite different classification systems. With access to the individual-level occupational responses for all people in the censuses, we have coded occupations into a common classification system based on the HISCO classification scheme. In Great Britain, Norway, and the United States, we also have coded occupations into domestic coding schemes.
