Description

Hi,

I want to use four digit ISCO 88 codes in Understanding Society for current job and last job. Although these variables (both 3 digit and 4 digit versions) appear in the data documentation, only condensed (3-digit) versions are available in the data. I wanted to ask whether 4 digit versions are available for Understanding Society?

P.S. I see that the 4 digit versions are publicly available in the BHPS data.

Many thanks!

Hi Sait
the four digit version of ISCO88 is only available in the Special Licence version of the data. The data can be downloaded from the UKDS, see https://discover.ukdataservice.ac.uk/catalogue/?sn=6931, there is, however, a requirement to apply for access, i.e., you need to justify why you need access to the more detailed information/ why the less detailed version is not suitable. You'll find all necessary information about the application process following the link included above.

Hope this helps.
