GEODE: Occupational Information Listings
This page contains links to OIR's about OUG's.
That is, as part of the GEODE service, it provides a means of accessing information resources about occupations (OIR's). By definitions, all of the OIR's are applicable to one or more defined taxonomies of occupational titles, or 'Occupational Unit Groups' (OUG's).
This page is a low-cost and simplified route to the information on OIR's. Over the period 2006-13 the GEODE service has maintained 'portals' which include 'search' and 'browse' functions to facilitate looking for resources, and 'curation' facilities for collecting and subsequently disseminating, resources. For various technical reasons the portals have not been available since 2014, for which reason this page is a manually mantained listing of the same information files.
If you want to suppy your own OIR's to this page, for distribution to other people, please see the GEODE guidance note.

What constitutes an OIR?
International Occupational Information
Occupational Information for the UK
- All materials on this page are authored by members of the GEODE research team.
- The records are ordered by the type of OUG (occupational title; employment status; industry) then herien alphabetically by country.
- The most important information, for the purposes of the GEODE project, is the 'GEODE URI' record. Other aspects of each record are filled in optionally. Some have considerable detail, others are much briefer records.
- Many OUG schemes may appear to contribute more than one record. This is usually because we wish to differentiate between alternative OUGs, which arise from the same structural definition, according to the different levels of occupational detail that they refer to. For example, the 'ISCO-88' scheme is recorded at the 4-digit level, but for our purposes, a separate OUG scheme, 'ISCO-88 (1-digit)' defines ISCO data which is only recorded at the single numerical digit of detail.
