Abstract Most of the social surveys carried out by the Office for National Statistics are conducted using computer-assisted interviewing. Occupation coding is carried out by interviewers, at home after the interview, using traditional clerical methods. This article describes a study carried out to evaluate the impact of computer-assisted coding on the quality of coded occupation data. An experiment was conducted comparing clerical coding to two computer-assisted coding systems, with respect to reliability and accuracy of coding, cost, speed and ease of use. The article concludes that computer-assisted coding of occupation by interviewers is feasible, but that the quality of the resulting data is dependent on the coding system used.
