Care needs to be taken when assigning information about particular jobs to ANZSCO occupations because the same job titles can be used in different industries to describe different occupations (for example, business analyst).
Further information about ANZSCO, including the ABS and Statistics NZ coding systems, can be obtained from the ABS National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070 or Statistics NZ's Information Centre on 0508 525 525.
The higher-paid sample (n = 845; 545 men; 300 women) comprised workers in the top three ANZSCO
groups (managers, professionals, and technicians and trades workers), whose earnings were above median Australian income.
1) Managerial employees (those with a 1-digit ANZSCO
code of '1-Managers and Administrators')
23) Occupations are coded in the original AES 2007 data file according to the new ANZSCO
system introduced by the ABS in 2006.
Some of the underlying concepts of ANZSCO may deserve some mention and here I am quoting throughout from the Australian Bureau of Statistics Information Paper (Catalogue No.
ANZSCO tries to make sense of the occupations in Australia and New Zealand within a hierarchy and taxonomy comprising five levels.
A major group in ANZSCO is Technicians and Trade Workers (Group 3).
At a minimum, I would expect every professional career practitioner worth their salt to be able to describe, define, recall or at least recognise the 998 occupations in ANZSCO.
Although the current ANZSCO and previous ASCO versions have proven useful for labour market analysis, a number of shortcomings are quite evident.
Thirdly, the list of tasks included in ANZSCO and ASCO is descriptive and lacks any information or measures on the level or the intensity required to perform a given task as is the case in the O*NET.
A fourth advantage of the O*NET over ANZSCO is that it is an extensive and comprehensive database that describes the attributes and characteristics of occupations and workers.
