Appendix R
Major Field of Study - International Standard Classification of Education and Classification of Instructional Programs (ISCED_CIP)

New on February 14, 2008

A concordance between the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) and the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) has been developed by Statistics Canada.

The ISCED was designed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as an instrument suitable for assembling, compiling and presenting statistics of education both within individual countries and internationally. Member states are invited to facilitate the use of this classification so as to increase international comparability.

This concordance or any other national or international concordances relating to the Classification of Instructional Programs are available, and will be updated as necessary, on Statistics Canada's website:
