CAMSIS: Britain 1991
Note that the CAMSIS scale is closely related to its precursor, the Cambridge Scale for the UK, details of which, including downloadable files giving scale values, can be obtained from here.

Data 1991 Census 1% Household Sample of Anonymised Respondents provided by the Census Microdata Unit)
Cases 92,021
Occupational classifications The modified version of the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC90) used in the SARs. Scores have also been converted to the 1991 Census classification (CO80: details below) and to the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO88).
Status in employment Seven categories, plus conversion to Standardised Employment Status (see below).

Status in Employment

The index files of scores allow for status in employment to be coded in two ways, as listed below. The first uses those categories that are conventionally distinguished in British occupational data; the second uses those constructed categories that we derive in order to provide scores that are compatible with other groupings that are used in international comparative studies (see the fuller discussion in the web page on Status in Employment). Note that in the construction managers in small (fewer than 25 employees) and large (25 or more employees) establishments were combined.

 Standardised
0 Not available, not known etc. (derived from categories 1 to 7) Not available, not known etc. (UK category 0)
1 Self-employed with 25 or more employees Self-employed (all) (equivalent to category 2 for UK)
2 Self-employed with fewer than 25 employees Self-employed (principal) (derived from UK categories 1 to 3)
3 Self-employed with no employees Own account (UK category 3)
4 Manager (large establishment) Employer (derived from UK categories 1 and 2)
5 Manager (small establishment) Family assistant ( not available for UK)
6  Supervisor Employee (derived from UK categories 4 to 7)
7 Employee (non-supervisory)
 

Occupational Classification
The British 1991 CAMSIS version was constructed using the Standard Occupational Classification in use for the 1991 Census (SOC90). The data source, however, was the 1991 census Sample of Anonymised Respondents 1% Household (SARS) and it should be noted that the occupational schema used for the SARS differs slightly from the 1990 SOC as a result of the aggregation of a few sparse occupations. The table below shows the link between units of the SOC and SAR schema. This table also shows the link between SOC90 and occupational categories used in the 1981 Census. Although there is not a one-to-one correspondence between the occupation unit groups (OUGs) of the SOC and the 1981 Occupational Classification, the match is quite close (despite the difference in the way that the categories are ordered). The table below, ordered by 1980 Operational Code, shows which 1980 group has been matched to an SOC unit group. The 1980 classification is unusual in distinguishing numerous separate OUGs for supervisors. Where several SOC groups make up a 1980 OUG, the score for the latter is based on a weighted combination.

CAMSIS scores for ISCO-88 occupational categories were derived from SOC90 by translation. Details of the linkage file and other files relevant to occupational data can be found on the CAMSIS page dealing with occupational classifications.
