The Occupational Classification applies to work and simultaneously to individuals through their work, and is used to indicate the statistics of each occupation (Note 1).
(Note 1) Since the classifications are applied to persons, expressions that denote persons such as workers are used.
The classifications in this Occupational Classification are set up independently from the industrial classifications of establishments, forms of employment of individuals, and the duration or continuity of work (Note 2).
(Note 2) The above does not apply to the agriculture, forestry and fisheries industries, in which the industry and occupation are closely related to each other.
The classifications are set up by considering how firmly work is established as an occupation in society as judged by the extent of the similarity of the work contents, number of persons engaged in the work, and other factors. This similarity of the work contents to be considered shall be as follows:
|Major Group||Minor Group||Unit Group|
|A - Administrative and managerial workers||4||10|
|B - Professionak and engineering workers||20||91|
|C - Clerical workers||7||26|
|D - Sales workers||3||19|
|E - Service workers||8||32|
|F - Security workers||3||11|
|G - Agriculture, forestry, and fishery workers||3||12|
|H - Manufacturing process workers||11||69|
|I - Transport and machine operation workers||5||22|
|J - Construction and mining workers||5||22|
|K - Carrying, cleaning, packaging, and related workers||4||14|
