Industries and occupations of trade sectors in the census

We have two pieces of data available in the census to classify people as workers in a trade sector: industry and occupation. For each sector we need a list of relevant industries and occupations as identified by ANZSIC and ANZSCO codes respectively. Each sector will then consist of various combinations of industry and occupation. The chart below shows how many workers have each combination of industry and occupation where either is relevant to a sector.

The results in this paper are the work of the authors, not Statistics NZ, and have been confidentialised to protect individuals, households, businesses, and other organisations from identification.
