They do. The ensuing debates are fun but of no use to those who need to analyze data. This book instead focuses on the methodological issue of the appropriate form of a social classification. In Part I, the authors describe the genesis of the Registrar-Generals occupationally based classification--and in particular its application to women--arguing that it is not obviously appropriate in the current context. In Part II, they set out the technical criteria which ought to be met by any index, and further argue that a social classification should have a specific domain of reference.

The book concludes with an examination of the implications of the argument for those concerned in collecting and analyzing empirical data and for the theoretical debate about social class.
