LFS Rebasing


One of the purposes of the rebasing of the Labour Force Survey files to 2006 was to assign 2006 NOCS codes. Therefore, shouldn’t the variable names be changed from NOCS_01_25, NOCS_01_47 and SP_NOCS01 to NOCS_06_25, NOCS_06_47 and SP_NOCS06 respectively, to avoid confusion (documentation says 2006, variable name says 2001)?


You are right. The variable names should be NOC_06_25 and NOCS_06_47. I will update the rebased record layout file provided to the DLI on the EFT site.
