    This study uses the National Occupational Classification for Statistics (NOC-S) definitions of occupations. An occupation is defined in this classifcation as a collection of jobs, sufficiently similar in work performed to be grouped under a common title for classification purposes.

    The selection of occupations is based on an examination of the occupational data for the 2001 Census for persons in the experienced labour force whose main job was in one of the tourism industry groups. Occupations with an estimated 5,000 employed persons or more were selected for this study. Occupations were added if in the 2006 Census they obtained more than 5,000 employed persons. Occupations were removed if in the 2006 Census they obtained fewer than 2,500 employed persons. These occupations were not common enough to support time series based on smaller samples from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). Between 2,500 and 5,000 employed persons some occupations were removed.

    A detailed listing of occupations along with their NOC-S codes follows.
