Question RouteUses wJBSIC, wJLSIC from wINDRESP, and wJHSIC from wJOBHIST, as defined by RJLID.
Index TermsEmployment: Industrial and Occupational Classification
Employment History: Size, Sector and Duties
NoteMost recent job is current job, or last job reported at this or a preceding wave. Industry was no longer coded to 1980 SIC from Wave 12 onwards, and was never coded to 1980 SIC in the Northern Ireland sample. This variable is therefore not available for respondents who started their most recent job or joined the sample in Wave 12 or later, or for respondents in Northern Ireland.

NoteMost recent job is current job, or last job reported at this or a preceding wave. Full industry coding to the 1992 SIC began in Wave 11. Main jobs were also coded to 1992 SIC at Wave 4 and Wave 7. This variable is therefore only available for GB respondents who have reported a job from Wave 11 onwards, or those who were in work at Wave 4 or 7, and did not report any other new job up to Wave 10. It is available for all members of the Northern Ireland sample who have reported a current or previous job.
