Variable Group: Occupation

Variable Groups are used to group together closely related variables. Under the DDI each system of categories is defined as a separate variable, so for example a variable categorising ages into five year bands running up to '95 and over' is a separate variable from one giving ages to '100 and up'. However, we group these into a single Variable Group covering ages.

Variable Group (VG)
This variable group brings together the different systems used for summarising how an individual made their living. During the 20th century, additional classifications were introduced concerned with what their employer's business was, i.e. 'Industry', and with social status.
