Historical International Standard Classification of Occupations

"Starting in the 1950s the International Labour Office has developed an International Standard Classification of Occupations (isco) allowing classification of occupational activities worldwide. Naturally, this system is not intended to deal with historical information. In recent years, a group of historians and sociologists have started to build upon the 1968 version of isco to create a classification scheme for occupational titles in the 19th and early 20th centuries, called hisco (...).

International Standard Classification of Occupations

"ISCO is a tool for organizing jobs into a clearly defined set of groups according to the tasks and duties undertaken in the job.

Työhön osallistuivat edustajat Sanastokeskus TSK:sta, sosiaali- ja terveysministeriöstä, Työsuojelurahastosta, Terveyden ja hyvinvoinnin laitoksesta, Työterveyslaitoksesta ja Työturvallisuuskeskuksesta. TSR-ontologiaan pyydettiin ja saatiin palautetta myös useilta työryhmän ulkopuolisilta asiantuntijoilta.

International Labour Organization Taxonomy

"The ILO Taxonomy was designed by the ILO Library as a tool for retrieving information from the ILO website. Its structure therefore closely reflects the work programme of the ILO and is used by ILO departments and Field Offices for describing the content of their web pages and for searching the ILO web site. It is also well suited for use as a subject classification system for arranging collections in small libraries or labour information centres. The main difference between the ILO Taxonomy and the ILO Thesaurus is its purpose.
