Opening the black box



"The development of an eEconomy poses major challenges to the conceptual basis of traditional schemes for classifying industries and occupations, by blurring the boundaries between the old categories as well as giving birth to new ones. In particular, an increasingly differentiated group of activities involved in the supply of business services can be seen as representing a new phase in the division of labour, which has implications not only for the classification of economic activities within national economies but also for their global distribution. This report presents the results of an experiment carried out within the frame of the STILE project in which coders in five EU Member States were asked to code 150 fictionalised descriptions of 'new' occupations and 150 descriptions of 'new' establishments in order to test the extent to which the international classification systems, ISCO (for occupations) and NACE (for sectors) currently capture the new realities of the eEconomy."
