The Canadian Classification and Dictionary of Occupations (CCDO) has been designed for use in manpower research and analysis, conducting surveys, census taking and compilation, planning of educational and training programs, counseling and placement services, rehabilitation, immigration and mobility of workers, and personnel and other operations in business and industry. The basic principle of classification in the CCDO is that of the kind of work performed, but to clarify further the nature of the occupation, other factors are taken into account, such as materials or equipment used or produced, standards met, education or training required, working environment, services rendered, and relationship to other workers. The two-volume set also provides data regarding physical activities, training requirements, worker functions in relation to Data-People-Things, and alternate and related titles where applicable.
