2001 Census Appendix 17

Industry
INDPUK

This question asks for a description of the business, or main activity of each person's employer. The variable uses a Census modified version of the UK Standard Industrial Classification of Economic Activities 1992 - UK SIC (92) classification. For the 2001 Census, industry descriptions given to the question above are automatically coded using the modified SIC(92) classification. Where possible, output will be at the detailed 4-digit level. However, in many cases, insufficient information is given by the public when completing this question. For example, insufficient responses provided by the form-filler relating to the construction industry has meant releasing output at the 2-digit level only. This has resulted in a need to produce a modified output classification that is a mixture of 2, 3 and 4-digit industry codes. The classification below provides output similar to that of the 1991 Census. In standard output, the most detailed classification is at section level, A to Q.

Applicability:All people aged 16 to 74 years working in the week before Census and all people aged 16 to 64 years who were not working in the week before Census but who last worked in 1996 or later, England , Wales and Scotland.
All people aged 16 to 74 years who have ever worked, Northern Ireland.
