Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) 1991
Status: This standard was replaced by the 'National Occupational Classification for Statistics (NOC-S) 2001' as of March 19, 2001.
Occupational data collected by Statistics Canada follows the structural framework of the Standard Occupational Classification. The Standard Occupational Classification 1991 is a revision of the Standard Occupational Classification 1980. The SOC 1991 is designed as a statistical classification with a similar format to its predecessor. Occupational groups are defined at all levels and example titles are listed alphabetically for each unit group. Consideration of population distribution in the development of the skill type major groups has improved the utility of the SOC 1991 over that of the 1980 SOC.
