On this page we provide documentation on the operationalization of the scheme, as well as additional information about spesific research articles that apply the scheme (e.g. do-files, exel files, additional analyses etc..).

Note that there is different versions of the scheme. This is due to varying amounts of background information in the datasets we apply. E.g., register data from 2003 use occupational codes based on a norwegian version of the isco-88-codes; STYRK, whereas NYK-codes (Nordisk yrkesklassifisering; "Nordic Occupational Classification) are used in versions from 1970 and 1980.
