Employment by NOC


I am trying to find some census/employment data. I have tried E-stat, and I can almost get what I need, but not quite. Ideally, what I would like is the number of people employed in the following NOC codes for Canada, Ontario and if possible for specific regions/cma's/subdivisions within Ontario. Through e-stat, I have found data for Canada and Ontario for SOC E1, which I don't think is quite the same.

College and Other Vocational Instructors 4131
Secondary School Teachers 4141
Elementary School and Kindergarten Teachers 4142


I have found a standard table on the Census Internet site that has the breakdown for the NOC-S 2001 variable, which I am including below.


I am also including a link below to the 2001 Census Dictionary for the definition on Occupation (based on the 2001 National Occupational Classification for Statistics [NOC-S 2001])


I have extracted a paragraph below from the definition that will explain the difference between the HRDC NOC codes and Statistics Canada's NOC-S 2001 codes.

Human Resources Development Canada classifies occupation data according to the National Occupational Classification (NOC). This classification has a similar structure to that of the 2001 National Occupational Classification for Statistics (NOC-S 2001). The two classifications have 520 unit groups, 140 minor groups and 10 broad categories in common. However, there are 47 major groups in the NOC-S 2001 and 26 major groups in the NOC. Occupation data from the 2001 Census are available according to both the NOC-S 2001 and the NOC structures.

As the codes your client are citing are from the NOC codes I have provided the codes below for the National Occupational Classification for Statistics.

E121 College and other vocational instructors
E131 Secondary school teachers
E132 Elementary school and kindergarten teachers
