Technical occupation

Occupation classified as technical. The classification of technical occupations here is based on CBS’ standard occupational classification, which includes ROA-CBS 2014 (abbreviated as BRC) and derived from the ISCO of the ILO. This news release applies a narrower definition of the ‘Technical occupations’ class. This delineation of technical occupations was drawn up by the Ministry of Economic Affairs in consultation with various stakeholders.
The exact breakdown of technical occupations can be found in annex 2 of a customised table on labour participation among technicians aged 15 to 74 years (in Dutch only) on the CBS website.
