BIBB definition of occupational fields

BIBB definition of occupational fields

The BIBB definition of occupational fields summarises occupational codes with similar occupational tasks distinguishing 54 occupational fields (cf. Tiemann et al. 2008: 6).

Origin/Creator: Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB)
Method/Structure: The data basis of the classification is the microcensus 2004. The occupational groups of the KldB 92 with the same occupational task focus are further grouped. If an occupational classification does not correspond to the task focus of the occupational groups, it is regrouped unless the industry focus corresponds to that of the occupational groups. Furthermore, a distinction is made in the occupational fields between the public and private sector (based on the WZ03) (cf. Tiemann et al. 2008: 6).
