Industry category (2002-forward), round record


For persons aged 16 and older who are in scope and have a current main job, INDCATRD reports the industry category of the person's current main job. INDCATRD reports the condensed industry code based on the detailed four-digit Census classification of a verbatim text field collected during the interview. Please see the Comparability tab for information on changes over time to the underlying detailed coding scheme on which the condensed codes are based. For condensed industry codes prior to 2002, see INDCAT90RD.

In 2002-2009, the 2003 four-digit Census codes were assigned before collapsing into major industry categories. Since 2010, the 2007 Census Industry coding scheme was used for initial classification of verbatim fields before condensing. While the major groupings may appear the same over time, changes to the underlying detailed codes may affect how detailed industries are assigned to the condensed categories. INDCATRD is comparable within 2002-2009, and 2010-forward periods, but is not comparable between these groups of years.
