To create a prototype ESeC based upon the harmonised EU standard for occupational classification (ISCO88) and labour market position.Description of work

Two forms of derivation matrices will be produced relating to 2-digit and 3-digit ISCO88 occupational groups.

Preceding the prototype production, a workshop involving all partners will be held to address the outstanding issues from the Expert Group Report and enable all partners to contribute toward the construction of a prototype ESeC. Then, utilising existing information on employment relations and conditions, a prototype ESeC will be prepared which can be applied to both the European Labour Force Survey and the European Community Household Panel.

Following the workshop a report on the prototype ESeC including the derivation matrices will be produced.


A report on the prototype ESeC, detailing its construction via ISCO88 and other information (notably Status in Employment). The report will allow partners to consider how to construct improved national versions of the ESeC if this is felt to be appropriate.

Milestones 2 and expected result

Prototype ESeC derivation matrices and categories for consideration by all partners.

1 For STREPs/STIPs each WP must relate to one (and only one) of the following three possible Activity Types: RTD/Innovation activities, Demonstration activities, Management activities.

2 Milestones are points where major results have successfully been achieved as the basis for the next phase of work, or which serve as control points at which decisions are needed; for example concerning which of several technologies will be adopted as the basis for the next phase of the project.
