Classification of the Purposes of Non-Profit Institutions Serving Households

"In principle, COPNI classifies individual outlays of NPISHs according to the purpose they serve. In most countries, however, there is little information about the activities of NPISHs and so, for practical reasons, the NPISHs themselves will usually constitute the units of classification. Many, perhaps most, NPISHs have a single purpose and can be unambiguously allocated to one of the purposes listed in the classification.

International Classification of Activities for Time-Use Statistics

"The classification seeks to provide the basis on which data from time-use surveys would be coded and presented in categories that would be meaningful in the assessment of national labour inputs into production of all goods and all types of services; in the compilation of household satellite accounts; and in examining trends in the broad uses of time."

Central Product Classification

"The name 'Central Product Classification' is intended to indicate that the purpose of CPC is to provide a framework for international comparison of various kinds of statistics dealing with goods, services and assets. Basically, CPC is intended to be used for different types of statistics, for example, industrial statistics and national accounts, price statistics, foreign trade statistics (including trade in services) and balance-of-payments statistics."

"Die Schlagwortliste des DZA dient als Grundlage für die inhaltliche Erschließung der Literatur in GeroLit und wurde im Hinblick auf die spezialisierte Literatur von den Mitarbeiter/innen der Bibliothek erstellt."

"The keyword list of the DZA serves as a basis for the content development of the literature in GeroLit and was created by the staff of the library with regard to the specialized literature."

Canadian Immigration and Citizenship Indexing Terms

"The Canadian Immigration and Citizenship Indexing Terms is a bilingual standardized vocabulary developed to facilitate the indexing and retrieval of resources available from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). In addition to the indexing and searching functions, the Indexing Terms is meant to clarify terminology and provide a standard, common language for use within the fields of citizenship and immigration.

VOCED Thesaurus

"This thesaurus is based on the original APSDEP Thesaurus, produced in 1993 by the International Labour Organisation's Asian and Pacific Skills Development Programme (ILO/APSDEP). Selected appropriate terms from the APSDEP thesaurus have been merged with terms from a supplement, produced at NCVER, containing recent Australian vocational education and training (VET) terms. This thesaurus is not currently being used in VOCEDplus."

USC Shoah Foundation Institute Thesaurus

"Containing thousands of genocide‐related concepts and experiences, the USC Shoah Foundation Institute Thesaurus is one of the first of its kind. It lists the indexing terms used to describe the Institute's video testimonies and arranges them hierarchically under broad headings. These terms have been assigned directly to digital time codes within testimonies where the specific topics are discussed, in much the same way that book index entries specify the page numbers where topics are covered.
