Variant of NOC 2011 - Highly aggregated data

Status: This standard was replaced by the 'Variant of NOC 2016 Version 1.0 - Highly aggregated data' as of May 16, 2016.

This variant of NOC 2011 has been developed jointly by Statistics Canada and Human Resources and Skills Development Canada. It is based on a review of actual practices in the analysis of highly aggregated occupational data, consideration of the highest aggregation level in the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO) and consultation with potential users.

This variant consists of 10 groupings, from a. to j., that are a convenient and useful way to summarize and analyse more detailed classes. The first three classes are homogeneous on skill level. The remaining classes focus on skill type. All classes consist of entire major groups; no major group is split between classes of the variant.
