occupation classification - France

#1

Good morning,

I would like to know which is the classification of occupations that is present in France IPUMS 2006. It is a 4 digit code, but it does not look like as PCS as in IPUMS the last digit of the code is numeric.

Thank you very much

The occupation coding used in the French 2006 sample is a 4-digit code. You can include the source variable into your data extract by adding the FR2006A_PROF486variable. The documentation associated with this variable should also be helpful in providing additional information about how individual occupations are coded within the 2006 French sample.
