Details

In the 2007-2014 CCHS survey cycles, occupation group has 5 categories. This variable, however, includes a sixth category to account for the "other" category asked in the 2001 CCHS survey cycle. The categories are as follows:

  1. Management, Health, Education, Art, Culture

  2. Business, Finance, Admin

  3. Sales or Service

  4. Trades, Transport or Equipment Operator

  5. Unique to Primary Industry/Processing/Manufacturing

  6. Other

In this variable, categories from the 2001 CCHS survey cycle were collapsed to harmonize with the other survey cycles. "Management, Professional (including accountants), Technologist, Technician or Tech Occupation" were combined into one category "Management, Health, Education, Art, Culture". "Farming, Forestry, Fishing, Mining" and "Processing, Manufacturing, Utilities", were combined into one category "Farming, Forestry, Fishing, Mining, Processing, Manufacturing, Utilities".
