Abstract

As part of the ESeC project, a project aimed at constructing a new class schema - the European Socio-economic Classification, a number of analysis were done with ESS-data which aimed at a comparison between EGP (Erikson, Goldthorpe and Portocarero class schema) and ESeC concerning relevant outcomes. The schemes were found to be rather similar and in general to produce expected outcomes. Transparency and user-friendliness talks in favor of the ESeC schema.
