Overview
  • NS-SEC categories

(2) NS-SEC derivation

(3) Constructing the NS-SEC

the ns sec
1 Higher managerial

and professional occupations

(1.1 Large employers and higher managerial)

(1.2 Higher professional)

2 Lower managerial

and professional occupations

3 Intermediate occupations

4 Small employers and own account workers

5 Lower supervisory and

technical occupations

6 Semi-routine occupations

7 Routine occupations

8 Never worked and long-term unemployed

validation studies
Validation studies

(a) CRITERION VALIDATION

Do measures of employment relations discriminate between the categories of the NS-SEC?

(b) CONSTRUCT VALIDATION

How well does the NS-SEC explain variance in theoretically relevant dependent variables?

summary
Summary
  • NS-SEC is first a conceptual construction (hence NS-SEC is a schema)
  • To operationalise the schema we need an algorithm to a detailed set of occupation-by-employment status units
constructing the derivation matrix 1
Constructing the Derivation Matrix (1)

Information required on:

  • occupation: coded to SOC2000 OUG;
  • employment status;
  • number of persons in the establishment (0, 1-24, 25+).

Reduced & Simplified versions of NS-SEC

Reduced NS-SEC - if no information on establishment size

Simplified NS-SEC - if data only on occupation

OR ‘Dominant’ position in labour market

advantages of the ns sec
Advantages of the NS-SEC
  • Conceptually clear and rigorous
  • Simple to create
  • Flexible in use
  • Easier to maintain
  • Better explanatory tool
