OC2HIRNO classifies a person's second occupation, and describes the socio- economic level of the occupation.

It classifies occupations as ranging from landowners and capitalists, at the top; through professionals, office functionaries, and those running their own businesses; to craft workers and work leaders; to day laborers and apprentices; and finally to unemployed and/or unproductive individuals at the bottom.

Information on the industrial sector a person worked in is contained in the variable OC2TRDNO.

Note that not all people had two occupations, and that the information on the first occupation is more meaningful. See the variables OC1HIRNO and OC1TRDNO.

Less than 3% of individuals reported a secondary occupation in the 1900 Norwegian census.
