What is SSOC? What is BGTOCC?

Updated over a week ago

Singapore Standard Occupational Classification (SSOC) is the national standard for classifying occupations and is used for censuses of population, household surveys and administrative databases. The SSOC adopts the basic framework and principles of the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO).

BGTOCC (Burning Glass™ Technology Occupations) is Burning Glass's own proprietary occupation taxonomy. This taxonomy was created in order to improve the comparability of occupation statistics between the labour markets Burning Glass provides data for. This universal taxonomy reduces errors by removing the need for taxonomical translation, which helps facilitate international analysis.
