CAMSIS: Portugal

There are two versions of CAMSIS scales based upon data for Portugal. One is based on 2011 data for ISCO-08 3-digit units, the other is based on data from 1995-2000 from the CHER database, for ISCO-88 2-digit categories. Note that the latter uses a small number of occupational categories and a relatively small sample size.
