"The goal of developing a Classification of Occupations 2010 (KldB 2010) was to create an up-to-date and generally accepted classification of occupations for Germany, which on the one hand satisfies the pronounced occupation-specific structuring of the German labor market and on the other hand enables linking to the International Standard Classification of Occupations 2008 (ISCO 08). In contrast to former occupational classifications in Germany, which were developed deductively based on existing expert knowledge about occupations, the KldB 2010 based on a theory-driven empirical analysis of similarities between occupations and is comple-mented by a coherence check of these aggregation results. In this methodological report, we first give a short introduction to the KldB 2010 as well as their systematic and structural innovations. Afterwards, we show how information on occupations (e.g. information on occupational activity gathered in an interview) can be coded according to the KldB 2010. Thereby, hints for the usage of the classification are provided, particularly in regard to rules of classification and assignment principles. Finally, we provide an overview of currently existing conversion keys from and to KldB 2010." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
