Summary

Holland's (1973) theory classifies occupations in terms of similarity to six ideal types (Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional) by assigning each occupation a three-letter code. Holland codes were recently developed for all occupations in the "Dictionary of Occupational Titles." The code for some occupations changed substantially, but the consequences of these changes are not known. This study compared old and new Holland codes for 1,410 population scientists. Twenty-two separate occupational codes were required under both schemes. The Investigative type was the highest scale under both schemes. Changing from the old to the new scheme reduced average scores on Artistic and Social scales and increased average scores on Enterprising and Realistic scales. The validity of the two schemes against four criteria of research productivity was about equal, suggesting that the two coding schemes are about equally effective. Researchers can choose whichever scheme best meets their specific needs. Counselors may prefer the new scheme because it provides codes for many more occupations. (Author/NB)
