Developing occupational skills profiles for the UK: A feasibility study

In summary, this report is a technical paper describing the complex matching procedure that we have undertaken between the O*NET and UK SOC. It examines the feasibility of matching US and UK occupations, and includes an evaluation of the quality of the matching and some assessment of the sensitivity of the resulting profiles to the various assumptions that are necessarily made at different stages of the process. We also provide some examples of the occupational skills profiles that can be constructed, and compare these profiles with some other extant measures of job skills and activities in order to provide some assessment of the validity of the methodology that we have developed.
