6. Overview of classification mapping
Information identified as archived is provided for reference, research or recordkeeping purposes. It is not subject to the Government of Canada Web Standards and has not been altered or updated since it was archived. Please "contact us" to request a format other than those available.
This section provides a broad summary of the mapping of NAICS, NAPCS, NOC-S and CIP classifications to culture domains and sub-domains. It discusses, in general, how these classifications correspond to the framework. This provides a first step for identifying where the classifications match well with the framework and flagging areas where more customized analysis would be required.
This is intended to be a brief overview. Full detail on the mapping of the classifications to the framework can be found in the classification tables.
6.1 Summary of mapping by domain
6.1.1 Heritage and Libraries
- NAICS has an identifiable industry, Archives (NAICS 519122).
- NAPCS provides product codes for Admissions to archives (NAPCS 519031.1.2.1) and Archival institution services (NAPCS 519031.1.2.2). Non-monetary (free) archival services, such as access to collections or research advice, would not be captured since NAPCS is transaction ($) based.
- NOC-S captures Archivists (NOC-S F013) as a distinct category. Technical archival support is aggregated with Library and Archive Technicians and Assistants (NOC-S F111). Another related occupation is Records Management and Filing Clerks (NOC-S B513). Archive management is aggregated with Library, Archive, Museum and Art gallery Managers (NOC-S A341).
- NAICS has an identifiable industry, Libraries (NAICS 519121)
- NAPCS aggregates all library products in one category under Lending library services (519031.1.1). As NAPCS is transaction based, it does not capture "non-monetary" transactions such as library loans.

- NAPCS has codes for a variety of products and services related to cultural heritage, including admissions, consulting services, and public programs. As NAPCS is transaction-based, however, the codes refer only to those admissions and services for which a fee is charged. No definition is available in NAPCS for "free admissions."

At more aggregated levels, however, these codes are grouped with sport. NAPCS also includes Other media rights (NAPCS 711032.1.2) and Performing arts society and club membership services (NAPCS 813001.1.3).
- NOC-S has relatively detailed coverage of performers (including F033, F034, F035 and F132). It also identifies Producers, Directors, Choreographers and Related Occupations (NOC-S F031).

- NOC-S identifies Photographers (NOC-S F121) and Photographic and Film Processors (NOC-S J184).
- NAICS – Crafts are not currently identifiable in NAICS 2007, as they are subsumed in a variety of manufacturing industries. As a result, large numbers of classified manufacturing industries contain elements of craft production. Using NAICS 2007, the classification tables identify 'partials' for crafts establishments at the 3-digit level, because of the conceptual difficulty of identifying craft production within manufacturing industries. For those individuals who work independently in crafts, NAICS 2012 will be altered to explicitly include craftspeople with Independent Artists, Visual Arts (NAICS code 711511). Establishments primarily involved in the wholesaling and retailing of crafts are also included (as partials) in related industries.
- NAPCS does not contain codes that specifically identify handmade crafts.
- NOC-S identifies a distinct code for Artisans and Craftspersons (NOC-S F144).
- Advertising, Public Relations and Related Services (NAICS 5418) includes a variety of industries for which we are only interested in establishments whose primary activity is the creation of advertising content.

- NAPCS does not identify any distinct interactive media services or products. Instead, video games are aggregated with home software applications. A NAPCS code titled Video Games (NAPCS 713022.2.1.1) refers only to coin-operated video games. Rental of video games is included with Rental of movies and games on DVDs, tapes and cassettes (NAPCS 532002.1.5) which is mapped to Film and Video.
- The CFCS is only interested in those occupations directly related to the creation and development of interactive media as culture products. It does not include computer programmers as a culture occupation. Thus, Computer Programmers and Interactive Media Developers (NOC-S C074), is a partial.
6.1.6 Sound Recording
- NAICS has industry codes for Record Production (NAICS 51221), Integrated Record Production/Distribution (NAICS 51222), Sound Recording Studios (NAICS 51224) and Other Sound Recording Industries (NAICS 51229).

- Composers and arrangers are included here in Conductors, Composers and Arrangers (NOC-S F032). Songwriters are included with other writers (NOC-S F021).
6.1.7 Education and Training
- NAICS 611 identifies educational industries by level of the institution (e.g. secondary, university, fine arts schools), however, NAICS is focused on business information and most information on the NAICS education industries is limited to private training. All of these industries are treated as partial because the framework only includes those education establishments offering culture programs. Educators, who are primarily artists and performers, are categorized as Independent Artists, Writers and Performers (NAICS 7115).
- NAPCS has detailed codes for educational programs (NAPCS 611001 to 611004), by the subject of the programs.
- NOC-S has education and training occupations but they are aggregated by level of the educational system. They are not directly related to culture. Instead, jobs in culture education will have to be derived from a combination of occupation and educational program in order to identify education positions related to culture. It should also be noted that some of the Creative and Performing Artist occupations (NOC-S F03) include artists and performers who work privately as instructors or in studios and private art schools.
- CIP codes can be used to classify education and training programs (within institutions), particularly at the post-secondary level. This classification provides detailed program codes for educational programs related to culture.
6.1.8 Governance, Funding and Professional Support
- NAICS contains government entities grouped by level of government. Program detail is not available to capture culture programs. Similarly, professional services related to culture tend to be aggregated into larger industrial groups such as Labour, Business or Professional organizations, Grant-making services, or Agents and Managers. Endowment funds used to collect and administer donations for not-for-profit culture institutions (theatres, museums, etc) are included with Other Miscellaneous Funds and Financial vehicles (NAICS 526989).
- NAPCS has no detailed products related to this domain, except for detailed codes for basic and applied research products. There are other product codes for career management services, representation in contracts, and association or union membership services. These codes are partial for culture.
- There are no distinct culture occupations directly related to the Governance, Funding and Professional Support sub-domain. Jobs in government that involve responsibilities for culture activity have to be derived from a combination of general occupations (managers, policy and program officers, economists and researchers) and government programs to identify government jobs related to culture.
