Abstract
To what degree are HISCO based measures of class (HISCLASS and SOCPO) and occupational stratification (HIS-CAM) comparable with each other and contemporary measures? Next to a large degree of congruency, we find considerable differences between the measures, raising questions concerning the comparability of occupation-based measures across studies.
