Brookfield's occupation statistics quantify the occupations in which the residents work (which may be within the residing area or elsewhere).

When viewed with other indicators, such as Educational Qualifications and Individual Income, Occupation is a key measure for evaluating Brookfield's socio-economic status and skill base.

'In the main job held last week, what was the person's occupation?' and 'What are the main tasks that the person himself/herself usually performs in that occupation?'
