occupar

https://travis-ci.org/DiogoFerrari/occupar.svg

Overview

The package occupar (Occupation Classification in R) provides:

  1. a handful of functions to convert between different versions of the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO): ISCO-68, ISCO-88, ISCO-08.
  2. a set of functions to compute class schemes (EGP, ISEI, ESeC, etc.) based on ISCO.

The current package benefited from Harry Ganzeboom’s tables on ISCO and class schemes.

Instalation

devtools::install_github("DiogoFerrari/occupar")
# If you don't want to update the dependencies, use: (you may need to install some dependencies manually)
devtools::install_github("DiogoFerrari/occupar", dependencies=F)

NOTE: it may be necessary to create a token to install the package from the git repository in case it is private (see note at the bottom of help page in R by running help(install_github)).

Usage

library(magrittr)
library(tibble)
library(dplyr)
library(occupar)
## --------------------------------
## Converting from ISCO-A to ISCO-B
## --------------------------------
## The general format of the funcions are:
## isco<from>to<to> : convert from ISCO-<from> to ISCO-<to>, where <from> and <to> are the year identifying the ISCO
## isco<yr>labels   : get the labels for ISCO<yr>, where is  the year identifying the ISCO


## Example: Converting from ISCO-08 to ISCO-88
## -------------------------------------------
## suppose you have ISCO-08 codes (labels are not needed, only the codes; they are included for ilustration only):
table = tibble::tribble(
            ~isco08, ~isco08.label,
            2310, "University and higher education teachers",
            2641, "Authors and related writers",
            5230, "Cashiers and ticket clerks",
            9629, "Elementary workers not elsewhere classified"
        )

## you can get a vector with corresponding ISCO-88 codes using:
isco88 = occupar::isco08to88(table$isco08)
isco88

## you can also get the labels of the ISCO-88:
isco88.labels = occupar::isco88labels(isco88)
isco88.labels


## --------------------------
## Computing EGP from ISCO-X
## --------------------------
## To compute class scheme (EGP,ISEI, ESec, etc) from ISCO-X, where X represent the year of the ISCO, use:
## isco<X>to<class-scheme>

## Example (labels of ISCO codes are not needed, only the codes; they are included for ilustration only):
table = tibble::tribble(
            ~isco08, ~isco08.label                                , ~n.employees, ~self.employed,
            2310   , "University and higher education teachers"   , NA          , 0,
            2641   , "Authors and related writers"                , 0           , 1,
            5230   , "Cashiers and ticket clerks"                 ,0            , 0,
            9629   , "Elementary workers not elsewhere classified", 0           , 1,
            1200   , "Corporate managers"                         , 20          , 1,
        )


isco88toEGP(table$isco08, n.employees=table$n.employees, self.employed=table$self.employed,  n.classes=11)
isco88toEGP(table$isco08, n.employees=table$n.employees, self.employed=table$self.employed,  n.classes=7)

## using pipe and dplyr workflow:
table %>% dplyr::mutate(EGP.11.classes = isco88toEGP(isco08, n.employees=n.employees, self.employed=self.employed,  n.classes=11)) 
table %>% dplyr::mutate(EGP.5.classes = isco88toEGP(isco08, n.employees=n.employees, self.employed=self.employed,  n.classes=5)) 
table %>% dplyr::mutate(EGP.3.classes = isco88toEGP(isco08, n.employees=n.employees, self.employed=self.employed,  n.classes=3))
