At present we have a file below which gives versions of a related scale for the period 1985, constructed by Bakker. This version is broadly comparable with the other CAMSIS measures. However, it pre-dates them and was not constructed in precisely the same way. The original values (see Bakker 1993) have been rescaled to be consistent with other CAMSIS measures.
Before downloading the tables, users are strongly recommended to read: Accessing and using CAMSIS scale scores The construction of CAMSIS measures

Users of the above scale for 1985 are asked to cite the research article which describes it:
- Bakker, B. F. M. (1993). A new measure of social status for men and women: the social distance scale. Netherlands Journal of Social Sciences, 29, 113-129.
- We have plans to generate a CAMSIS scale for detailed occupational unit groups using recent Dutch data in the coming months [Sep 2012].
- Another SID scale for 26 occupational groups for the Netherlands has also recently been generated by Kraaaykamp, van Eijck and Ultee, described in the following chapters:
- Kraaykamp, G., van Eijck, K., & Utlee, W. (2010). Status, class and culture in the Netherlands. In T. W. Chan (Ed.), Social Status and Cultural Consumption (pp. 169-203). Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
- Chan, T. W. (2010). The social status scale: Its construction and properties. In T. W. Chan (Ed.), Social Status and Cultural Consumption (pp. 28-56). Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
The table below shows the values of the occupational unit groups originally used. The CAMSIS version uses only groups 1 to 81, with separate scores for the self-employed, where applicable. It does not include the scores for those not in employment.
